According to Puck Daddy associate editor Sean Leahy, Former Dallas Stars prospect Fabian Brunnström has signed a tryout contract with the Red Wings. For those that remember, Red Wings' GM Ken Holland wined-and-dined the former Swedish Elite League forward in 2008 before he went on to sign with Dallas. Detroit ended up signing Finnish standout Ville Leino and the rest is history. Brunnström, now 26, has bounced around between the AHL and NHL. He recorded a hat trick in his first NHL game and has 40 points in 99 career games at the NHL level.
