[Signing] Kent Huskins to Detroit, Detroit recalls Nyquist

14 posts in this topic

As per TSN,

The Detroit Red Wings signed unrestricted free agent defenceman Kent Huskins to a one-year, one-way contract on Tuesday.

Huskins will replace Carlo Colaiacovo in the lineup, who was placed on Injured Reserve Tuesday with a shoulder injury suffered in Columbus.

Huskins spent last season on the St. Louis Blues roster, where he missed 52 games with an ankle and hand injury. Through 25 contests with the Blues, he registered two goals and five assists with a plus- 9 rating.

Drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in the sixth round (156th overall) of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, the Almonte, Ont, native was a member of the Florida Panthers and Vancouver Canucks before seeing his first NHL action with the Anaheim Ducks in 2006-07 - the same season he helped the team win the Stanley Cup.

Following the 2008-09 campaign in Anaheim, the 33-year-old was traded to the San Jose Sharks - along with Travis Moen - for Nick Bonino,Timo Pielmeier and a conditional draft pick. He registered a career-high 22 points in the 2009-10 season with the Sharks.

On July 2, 2011, Huskins signed with the Blues as a free agent.

This is why the were blown out 6-0. Detroit's defence was suspect before CC went down, I can only imagine the carnage now. Old brittle forwards, fringe defencemen, shaky goaltending...ew.

"Defenceman Todd Bertuzzi was also added to the Injured Reserve Tuesday. The veteran blue liner is suffering from flu-like symptoms."

I guess there's just no way to see something like that coming. [/sarcasm]

Surprised they didn't snag Vandermeer. Huskins is a great defenceman, plus player almost all of his career, can put up points and has very decent size. I'm surprised we didn't go for him.

Either way their defence is a bunch of unwanted UFAs right now and they're in trouble. The biggest issue is their lack of offence though, they've scored what, 3 goals in 3 games? Pretty pathetic considering most of their forwards are healthy and they're supposed to have a very deep forward core.

Wonder what value Ballard would have to a team like Detroit?

No need to trade him now, but once the season is over. Could save us a buy-out.
