Reports: Red Wings sign Princeton’s Ryan Kuffner


By @MichaelCaples –

Ron Fogarty tweeted a picture of three of his Princeton stars signing professional contracts today.

Some of that paperwork apparently belongs to the Detroit Red Wings.

Per Hockey Night in Canada’s Elliotte Friedman and TSN’s Bob McKenzie, the Wings have signed Ryan Kuffner, who just wrapped up his senior season.

A 22-year-old forward from Ottawa, Kuffner registered 44 points in 31 games for Princeton this season, after posting 52 in 36 in 2017-18.

He spent four seasons with the Tigers, recording a total of 152 points at the ECAC school.
