Detroit Red Wings sign 22-year-old Defenseman Antti Tuomisto

The Detroit Red Wings yesterday announced they have signed defenseman Antti Tuomisto to a two-year entry-level contract beginning in the 2023-24 season. Tuomisto was drafted in the second round at 35th overall in the 2019 NHL Draft.

Key Points

  • Red Wings sign Antti Tuomisto
  • Tuomisto signed to a two-year- entry level contract.
  • Tuomisto was drafted 35th overall in the 2019 NHL Draft.
  • Tuomisto’s contract begins in the 2023-24 season.

Meet Antti Tuomisto

Tuomisto played two years at Denver University appearing in 59 games, scoring three goals and adding 17 assists and finished with a plus/minus of +18. This season he has played for Liiga in the Champions Hockey League, playing in 60 games scoring five goals, adding 15 assists, and has a plus/minus of -6.

Tuomisto’s stock has dropped since he was drafted but will add a right-handed shot to the Red Wings, something they are lacking; he will also add size being six foot five inches tall and 205 pounds. It will be interesting to see where Tuomisto starts the 2023-24 season, but this could be a solid piece for the Red Wings.
