Fringe Signings (July 21)

With the injury concerns to both Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen, leading up to the 2016 season, the signing of forward Teemu Pulkkinen becomes a fringe signing, as he is one of the guys, who might get a little extra ice-time, thanks to those injuries.

Pulkkinen signed a 1-year deal, reportedly worth $735,000 as a restricted free agent on Tuesday.

The 23-year old Finn played in 31 games last season, scoring 5 goals and 8 points.

There are some fairly high expectations on the young Finn and with the way that the Red Wings have been grooming some of their talent of late, like Tomas Tatar and Tomas Jurco, it shouldn't come as a surprise, if Pulkkinen develops into one of those players this year.
