The Red Wings have been busy this offseason acquiring both front office staff and players. A couple of the newest signings and extensions include Dylan McIlrath, defenseman, to a 2-year extension and Joe Veleno, center, to a 3-year entry level contract.

Dylan McIlrath is a seasoned AHL player and has 50 games of NHL experience. McIlrath was acquired late in the 2016-2017 season and helped the Grand Rapids Griffins win the Calder Cup the same year.

Joe Veleno was a first-round draft pick for the Detroit Red Wings (#30). His QMJHL team was recently knocked out of the playoffs in the third round by Halifax. Veleno is a point producing center who loves to make a play.
