Fabian Brunnstrom potted two goals for Frolunda to give his SEL team a 3-1 edge over Timra.

He had scored just one goal and one assist in 10 previous contests. Brunnstrom returned to Sweden this past summer after struggling to get NHL playing time following his debut season with the Dallas Stars in 2008-09. He appeared in just five games with the Detroit Red Wings last campaign and spent the majority of the previous two years in the minors.

Fabian Brunnstrom has reportedly signed a three-year deal with the Swedish Elite League's Frolunda.

"The NHL will always be the goal," Brunnstrom said, according to "I will always strive to be as good as possible as a player." Brunnstrom will probably be a star in the Swedish Elite League, but unfortunately he was never able to live up to expectations in the NHL. He has 19 goals and 41 points in 104 career NHL contests.

The Detroit Red Wings are interested in keeping Fabian Brunnstrom for the 2012-13 campaign.

Brunnstrom didn't have an impact with the Red Wings this season, but he did score 12 goals and 35 points in 45 contests with AHL Grand Rapids this season. "The last 20 games, he really took a step forward in Grand Rapids," GM Ken Holland said. "We're interested in bringing him back, and we think he's interested. We'll see what happens. But he finished strong in Grand Rapids." Depending on how Detroit's off-season goes, there might be a roster spot open for Brunnstrom to compete for during training camp.

Fabian Brunnstrom and his wife Sandy became parents on Friday with the birth of their son, Alexander Noah.

The future 2029 NHL draft pick (unless the NHL and NHLPA change the draft age in future CBA talks) came in at seven pounds, three ounces. The Brunnstrom's are all doing well and now Fabian will be sent back to Grand Rapids of the AHL to resume playing hockey.

Fabian Brunnstrom is expected to play on Wednesday night against Tampa Bay.

His wife is due to have a baby any time now, but he says his mind will be on the task at hand. "I'm just trying to focus on the game when I'm here and when I'm at home, I'll focus on that," said Brunnstrom. He is slated to play on a line with Darren Helm and Daniel Cleary.

The Detroit Red Wings have recalled Fabian Brunnstrom from Grand Rapids of the AHL and sent him back to the minors.

Brunnstrom was not going to be with the team in Boston for Friday's game on NBC as he remained in Detroit to be with his wife who is expecting their first child. Brunnstrom stated that it will be a boy. The recall happened Wednesday night when the Red Wings sent Brendan Smith to the minors and he was then sent down on Thursday. Good thing that Grand Rapids is nearby because Brunnstrom does not know if he is coming or going.

Fabian Brunnstrom registered an assist in his return from the AHL on Saturday.

Brunnstrom earned a spot with the Red Wings out of training camp, but he only played in one game before he was sent to the minors. Brunnstrom was called up because Todd Bertuzzi was dealing with an illness, so we wouldn't be surprised if Brunnstrom is sent back to the AHL in the next couple of days.

The Red Wings placed Fabian Brunnstrom on waivers Saturday.

He wasn't getting any playing time in Detroit and the Wings want to see if they can sneak him past waivers and option him to Grand Rapids of the AHL. NHL teams have until Monday noon to make a claim on Brunnstrom. It will be interesting to see if another NHL club takes a gamble on the Swede.
