The Detroit Red Wings signed goaltenders Victor Brattstrom and Pat Nagle on Wednesday.
Brattstrom, a sixth-round draft choice in 2018, ranked second in the Swedish Allsvenskan this year with a 2.13 goals against average with Timra IK.
The 23-year-old Brattstrom, who signed a two-year entry level deal, also ranked sixth in the league with a .914 save percentage, helping the club to a third-place finish with a 33-12 record.
