Ab is Fab: Red Wings Ink Abdelkader for Two

Detroit rounded out their offseason moves today as young forward Justin Abdelkader signed a two-year deal with the Wings. Terms of the deal were, of course, not immediately disclosed; however, it is now known that Abby signed on for a total of $1.574 Million, making an average cap hit of $787,000/year.

Abdelkader will no doubt find his ice time on the fourth line in his usual checking role.

And now that the roster is all but finalized (with the exception of one or two salary cuts/dumps), all that is left is to wait for the season to roll around.

Is it October yet...?
