Prospect Kolosov signed

The Red Wings signed defenseman Sergei Kolosov to a two-year entry-level contract today. Kolosov (6-4, 187) was the Red Wings' fifth-round pick (151 overall) in 2004. The 22-year-old played in the USHL with Cedar Rapids before returning home to play in Belarus last winter.

Detroit would have lost his rights June 1, but there was no international transfer agreement in place, keeping Kolosov in the Red Wings' fold. The big blue-liner will be working to earn a spot in Grand Rapids this fall.

I like his upside to get even bigger than 187lbs for a 6'4" frame.
