The Detroit Red Wings and left winger Andreas Athanasiou have agreed in principle on a one-year contract reportedly worth $1.387 million.

"We see him as a top-nine forward who is going to be on a power-play unit and a penalty-kill unit", Holland said during the press conference.

McKenzie reported last week the Red Wings would only trade Athanasiou for a player of similar offensive skill who is at the same age or younger than him. MLive reported that Athanasiou had been contemplating offers to play in Russia's KHL since late August.

Nemanja Radonjic was found at the back post and his volley was well saved by Petr Cech before Reiss Nelson blocked the rebound. This goal also comes on the 4 year anniversary of the famous Arsenal goal against Norwich also involving Wilshere and Giroud.

With 22 players on the roster, someone would have to be moved out to accommodate Athanasiou if and when he returns as they are already up against the salary cap. The Red Wings would be best served securing his spot on their roster, and the sooner, the better.

In 2016-17, the London, Ontario-born Athanasiou scored 18 goals and 29 points in 64 games. While the deal comes with only a one-year term, it's essentially an opportunity for the Red Wings to continue developing their young prospect while pushing the contract discussions down the road for the time being. His 18 goals ranked second on the club. Athanasiou only averaged 13:28 of ice time last season, but it's a safe bet that he'll see much more rink run after he and his agent took so much time during the offseason reminding team brass just how valuable he is to the Original Six franchise.

With a potential KHL contract on the table, Athanasiou bolted for Switzerland on October 7.

The contract dispute was well-documented over the offseason with Bob McKenzie discussing the topic Thursday, highlighting the December 1 deadline to get a contract signed. He had until December 1 to make an National Hockey League return in order to be eligible to play this season. "The Detroit Red Wings had offered Athanasiou a two-year deal at $1.9 million per year".

"There is an incredibly high level of exasperation on both sides, from the Red Wings and Athanasiou".

Through seven games, the Red Wings are 4-3 and enter the weekend off back-to-back losses.
