Simon Edvinsson is unsigned with Detroit but, it’s only a matter of time before he signs his entry-level deal with the Red Wings.  Edvinsson has had a terrific first full season in the SHL.  He is currently one of the top defensemen in the SHL and should be added to the Swedish National Junior Team for the World Junior Tournament in December.

Next year, Edvinsson will be given every opportunity to break training camp and play on the Opening Night roster of the Red Wings.
