Mattias Backman has agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Detroit Red Wings.
He produced two goals and 24 assists in 52 games for Linkoping of the Swedish Elite League this past campaign. Backman is expected to spend another season in Sweden and former assistant GM Jim Nill said that he is probably two-to-three years away from playing at the NHL level if he continues to develop at his current pace. Backman was selected in the fifth round of the 2011 draft. Wed, May 22, 2013 05:51:00 PM
