Detroit Red Wings Continue Their Additions

The Detroit Red Wings earlier signed Cam Talbot and the job wasn’t done there, they’ve added defenseman William Lagesson, Erik Gustafsson, and then goalie Jack Campbell. Lagesson is a one-year deal with a 775K AAV, Gustafsson is a two-year deal with a $2M AAV, and Campbell is a one-year deal with a 775K AAV. They also brought back forward Christian Fischer on a one year deal with a $1.125M AAV.

Defenseman – Wiliam Lagesson

Lagesson will turn 29 on February 22nd and will be entering his fifth season, he’s played in 100 games recording 11 points all on assists, he is a career plus two; he has 54 penalty minutes, and 135 hits. Last season he split time with the Anaheim Ducks and the Toronto Maple Leafs playing in 40 games recording four points and was a plus-three; he had 32 penalty minutes and 76 hits which were a career high.

Defenseman – Erik Gustafsson

Gustafsson will enter his ninth season and is on his eighth different team. He’s played in 455 games recording 222 points on 45 goals, and 177 assists; he is a career plus four, he has 426 hits, and has 64 points on the power play on six goals, and 58 assists. Last season he played with the New York Rangers recording 31 points on six goals and 25 assists, he had nine power-play points all on assists; he was a plus-three, had 35 penalty minutes, and 63 hits.

Goalie – Jack Campbell

Campbell is a Michigan native and is entering his tenth season. In 176 games he is 93-52-18 with a .909 save percentage and 2.76 goals against average. Last season with Edmonton he played in only five games going 1-4-0 with a .873 save percentage and 4.50 goals against average. In the AHL Campbell last season played in 33 games going 18-13-1 with a .918 save percentage and a 2.63 goals-against average.

Forward – Christian Fischer

Fischer last season played in 79 games recording 19 points on five goals and 14 assists; he was an even plus/minus, and had one short handed goal as well as 138 hits.

Wrap Up:

The addition of Lagesson is a depth move but Gustafsson will replace Gostisbhere who signed in Carolina. Finally, the addition of Campbell and Talbot makes things a little interesting for what’s to come as Steve Yzerman said he didn’t want to carry three goals and right now he has three so I’d expect Talbot and either Ville Husso or Alex Lyon in Detroit and Campbell with Sebastian Cossa in Grand Rapids, it’ll be interesting to see who Detroit moves.
