Wings sign McGrath and Oulahen

The Red Wings re-signed a pair of minor-leaguer forwards, Evan McGrath and Ryan Oulahen to one-year contracts. Both were drafted by the Wings. Neither has proven to be an NHLer yet, but both have advanced their level of play. Both are the kind of person you really hope succeeds.

Here's the press release ...

Detroit… Detroit Red Wings Executive Vice President/General Manager Ken Holland today announced the team has re-signed forwards Evan McGrath and Ryan Oulahen to one-year contracts. In keeping with club policy, additional terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

McGrath, 23, was Detroit’s fourth round pick (128th overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He spent the last three seasons with the Wings American Hockey League affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins, posting a career-high 47 points in 68 games this past season.
