By @MichaelCaples –

The Red Wings and the Griffins have been busy over the last day or so.

Detroit has announced two signings – one a free agent and one a draft pick – while the Griffins are bringing back Michigan native Pat Nagle for another season.

This morning, the Wings announced the signing of Swedish forward Mathias Brome, a 25-year-old who has been playing in Swedish Hockey League.

In 2019-2020, he led his Orebro HK squad in assists (26) and points (43). He is a native of Orby, Sweden.

This afternoon, Detroit signed goaltender Victor Brattstrom, a sixth-round pick in 2018, to a two-year entry-level contract. The 23-year-old netminder played in 45 games for Timra IK of the Swedish Allsvenskan, and he ranked second in the league with a 2.13 goals-against average and sixth with a .914 save percentage.

He checks in at 6-foot-4 and 198 pounds.

Meanwhile, the Griffins locked up a Michigan native in Nagle, signing the Bloomfield native to a one-year contract. The 32-year-old goaltender established AHL career highs in wins (nine), goals-against (2.32), save percentage (.920), games played (20) and minutes (1136:19) in 2019-2020.

The Ferris State alum also played in 15 games with the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye this season, posting a 9-4-2 record, a 2.77 goals-against average and .910 save percentage.
