"He's in the same boat that Mikael Samuelsson or Danny Cleary were, guys coming in on pro tryouts. It worked out for those guys."
Brunnstrom likely won't make the Wings, but could give the organization some valuable depth The Wings already have 13 forwards on one-way contracts and Cory Emmerton is out of minor league options and would have to be exposed to waivers if he were to be sent down.
Nill said there has been no discussion as to the possibility of Brunnstrom playing in Grand Rapids if he doesn't make the Wings.

After his first couple of games with the Marlies, he largely disappeared so I don't see this as a hand wringer.

Moot Point:
That was a quick experiment.

Wings signed him to a two way deal

He's currently on their NHL roster

Moot Point:
I guess the signing was for the Wing's farm team.  He hasn't played for the big club yet.

He's still with the NHL team, in the press box, waiting for his chance.
