Andreas Athanasiou and the Detroit Red Wings have had positive talks with the intent to agree on a contract, according to the Detroit Free Press.

The 23-year-old had threatened to take his talents to the KHL as used it as leverage in the negotiations. Ferris addressed the rumors that his client could head to Russia soon.
"Things can change in quick moment and AA could be headed overseas and then the Olympics," Ferris said.
