First, it was forward Mathias Brome departing the Motor City for Switzerland. And now, defenseman Christian Djoos is joining him.

The former Detroit Red Wings defenseman has signed a two-year contract with EV Zug in of the Swiss National League in Switzerland:

Djoos was originally drafted by the Washington Capitals in 2012 with the 195th overall pick, and was a member of their 2017-18 Stanley Cup winning team. He would eventually be traded to the Anaheim Ducks, and subsequently waived after signing a one-year contract extension.

He was claimed off waivers by the Red Wings in January, where he went on to score two goals with nine assists in 36 games played.
