Detroit Red Wings sign D Albert Johansson

According to the Detroit Red Wings, they have signed defenseman Albert Johansson to a 3-year entry level contract.

From Detroit Red Wings:

Johansson, 19, was one of the most productive young defensemen in Sweden’s top professional league in 2019-20, posting 13 points (2-11-13) in 42 Swedish Hockey League games with Farjestad BK. He was the third-highest scoring junior-aged defenseman in the league and was tied for eighth among all players under age 20 in points as a first-year pro. Johansson logged five points (0-5-5) in his final four games of the season, as the SHL canceled its season just prior to the start of postseason play. The 6-foot, 168-pound defenseman played for Farjestad’s under-20 team at the beginning of the season, notching five points (3-2-5) to tie for second on the team in goals by a defenseman despite skating in only nine games. He also represented Sweden at the under-19 Five Nations Tournament held in Germany in February, producing three points (1-2-3) and a team-best plus-five rating in four games.
