Leino obviously wasn't a favorite of Coach Mike Babcock and quickly became one of Detroit fans' least favorite Wings.
Tollefsen is actually a few months younger than Leino. He's a physical defenseman who Wings fans probably best remember from his seasons in Columbus.
Tollefsen, who's from Norway, could/should challenge Derek Meech and Brett Lebda for a role on the third defense pairing at some point.
Tollefsen has a one-way $600,000 contract that expires this summer. Lebda's cap hit is $650,000 and Meech's is $483,333. Lebda will be unrestricted this summer. Meech and Tollefsen will be restricted free agents.
