Red Wings announce new contract signing

He's now officially a member of the organization.



Detroit Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman has secured another young piece of the organization that they are hoping to see big things from in the near future. 

Center Emmitt Finnie, whom Detroit selected in the 2023 NHL Draft with the 201st overall pick (Round 7), has been officially signed to a three-year entry level contract, and he'll be reporting to the American Hockey League Affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins for the remainder of this current season. 

While playing with the Kamloops Blazers of the WHL this season, he's racked up an impressive 19 goals and 40 assists in 62 games played.

"Always in the right place, he consistently influences the play even without the puck. A non-stop engine powers him up and down the rink, making up space to poke away pucks on the backcheck and force turnovers on the forecheck. He enters every battle with a couple of shoulder checks to find options and has the skill to connect."
