Delmore had an offer to return to Europe, but decided to have his agent give the Red Wings a call. "We just became aware he wanted to play in North American," Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said. "We have a relationship with (Delmore’s agent) Tom Laidlaw (who also represented former Red Wings Dallas Drake and Greg Johnson). "Tom informed us Andy was interested in remaining in North America." ... "I was always a fan of Detroit and I know they’re a great organization," the six-foot-one, 200-pound Delmore said. "I’ll go to Grand Rapids and be part of a first-class organization and whatever happens is going to happen."
