The Detroit Red Wings are trying to complete a deal with Adam Almqvist.

Almqvist was a 2009 seventh-round pick by the Red Wings. If he is not signed by June 1, 2011 Detroit will lose his rights. He would remain in Sweden even if a deal was reached. The solid rearguard led the Elite League with a plus-20 rating.

The Detroit Red Wings are quite high on their seventh round pick from a year ago, Adam Almqvist.

Almqvist was the second last player drafted in 2009, but as per usual the Red Wings have mined themselves a possible gem in the slight defenseman. "He's very weak," assistant GM Jim Nill said. "But he's one of those guys that it doesn't seem to bother. He's still gotta get stronger. He's about 160 pounds (and 5-feet-11), but you're hoping in three or four years to wake up and he's up to 190 pounds. His hockey sense and puck skills are as good as anyone. He could run a power play right now in the American Hockey League." Almqvist was called up by HV-71 of the Swedish Elite League and ended up being their top scorer among defensemen in the playoffs as they won the championship. Almqvist will remain in Sweden at least one more year but expect to see him in North America after that.
