Detroit Red Wings Re-Sign Defenseman

The Detroit Red Wings have signed Jake Walman to a one-year, $1.05 million contract.

Walman was set to have an arbitration hearing, but now that has been avoided with this contract being signed. Walman was asking for $1.7 million in his hearing, so the Red Wings should be happy that they got him to agree to a $1.05 million cap hit instead.

Walman was acquired by the Red Wings at the deadline from the St. Louis Blues in the Nick Leddy trade. In 51 games between the two squads on the year, he had three goals and 10 assists. Heading into 2022-23, he will be aiming to cement himself a permanent spot in Detroit's top six.
