In an decently quiet free agency day for the Wings, Detroit GM Steve Yzerman made somewhat of a splash on a youthful center who opened up because of the Blackhawks deciding not to give Pius Suter a passing offer moving toward limited free agency.

The 25 year old Swiss forward will be an unlimited free agent toward the finish of this long term bargain. He recently played in Guelph with Tyler Bertuzzi and Robin Fabbri

Suter set up 14 goals and 27 points playing around 2/3rds of his 5-on-5 time on Chicago’s top line with Alex DeBrincat and the other winger who puts up a lot of points.

His fundamental numbers recommend he held his own well on top line obligations however he’s a superior fit for a 2C job. He’ll have a lot of opportunities to perform with the Wings.
