Detroit Red Wings Sign Defenseman

The Detroit Red Wings have signed Robert Hagg to a one-year, $800,000 contract.

Hagg spent this past season split between the Sabres and Panthers. In 64 games in total, he scored one goal and recorded nine points. His offensive numbers have never been dominant, but he will provide Detroit with another defensive defenseman. He also plays a heavy game, as his 138 hits this season show well.

When looking at the Red Wings' depth chart, it seems that Hagg will be competing for a spot on their bottom pair. At worst, he will be a very serviceable seventh defenseman for the Wings.

In 300 career NHL games, Hagg has 14 goals, 42 assists, and 56 points.
