Brunnstrom chooses Stars over Red Wings, other teams
Swedish prospect Fabian Brunnstrom has agreed to sign with Dallas over the Red Wings and other NHL suitors.
The 23-year-old forward starred in the Swedish Elite League last season and was regarded as one of the top free agents available.
Detroit general manager Ken Holland -- who has stockpiled stars from Sweden such as Nicklas Lidstrom, Tomas Holmstrom and Johan Franzen -- said Thursday that Brunnstrom informed the Red Wings he would not be signing with them.
