Wings Sign Center Pius Suter to Two-Year Deal

DetroitHockey.Net

The Detroit Red Wings announced the signing of center Pius Suter to a two-year deal on Wednesday.

The deal reportedly carries a $3.25 million salary cap hit.

Suter comes to Detroit from the Chicago Blackhawks, who signed him as a free agent last offseason but did not give him a qualifying offer this summer, rendering him an unrestricted free agent.

Suter had a great rookie year – including scoring his first career hat-trick against Detroit – and I kind of love this pick-up, but I do worry that he could be Damien Brunner 2.0.  Even if he is, though, this seems like a low-risk, high-reward move, the kind that Detroit GM Steve Yzerman has mostly done well with since taking over the Red Wings.
