Just months after making his NHL debut, Landon Ferraro has reportedly re-upped with the Red Wings.
Per CapGeek, Ferraro has inked a one-year, two-way pact worth $550,000 at the NHL level. As mentioned, it comes just a short while after Ferraro made his big-league debut by appearing in four games for Detroit in late March, when he was recalled to replace the injured Justin Abdelkader.
The 32nd overall selection at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Ferraro — the son of longtime NHLer and current analyst Ray Ferraro — has enjoyed a decent level of success in the American League, most notably in 2012-13 when he scored 24 goals during the regular season and notched 16 points in 24 playoff games as Grand Rapids won the Calder Cup.
He’ll be in tough to crack the Detroit roster this season, though, as the club already has 13 forwards on NHL contracts and still needs to figure out what to do with RFA Tomas Tatar and veteran UFA Daniel Alfredsson.
