Brown had seven fights as an Oiler, if you’re keeping count, two with Jordin Tootoo, which brings up Tootoo.
There’s been some discussion that the Oilers should now take a run at Tootoo as a fourth-liner because he has some ability with the puck (he has 133 points and 49 career goals).
Daniel Cleary says he’ll skate with Red Wings on Friday; he has invitation to come to camp on tryout
Daniel Cleary said today that he will join his former Detroit Red Wings teammates on the ice Friday at Joe Louis Arena for an informal practice.
Where that will lead remains uncertain.
An NHL source has confirmed to FoxSportsDetroit.com that the Detroit Red Wings and Nashville Predators have discussed sending Jordin Tootoo back to Music City.
Tootoo was drafted by Nashville in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft and spent the first eight years of his NHL career with the Predators. The Wings signed him as an unrestricted free agent to a three-year, $5.7 million contract on July 1, 2012.
Red Wings would like to make another move or two, but that’s not likely to happen before training camp
Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland ideally would like to trim a couple of players and maybe sign another unrestricted free agent.
But he concedes that’s probably not going to happen. And that’s fine with him.
Cleary remains likely to return, at a rate of around $2.5 million to $2.75 million per for three years, but the Wings need to get someone off their roster of forwards, first. Alfredsson and Weiss have put Detroit at 14 forwards, a number that will grow by two when restricted free agents Joakim Andersson and Gustav Nyquist get new deals.
