Sergei Samsonov to tryout for the Wings?

Sergei Samsonov , who played for the Detroit Vipers, has been skating with the Red Wings during the conditioning period.

An unsigned unrestricted free agent, Samsonov lives in Oakland Township and is considering several professional tryouts.

Nothing, though, is definite.

“I’m staying in some kind of competitive shape, and see what happens,” Samsonov said.

In 78 games with Carolina and Florida last season, Samsonov had 40 points (13 goals).

Samsonov would like to try out with the Red Wings, but the team appears comfortable with the depth it has up front.
