A former London Knight – a current Barrie Colt – Andreas Athanasiou signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Detroit Red Wings. A normally veteran dressing room, the Red Wings are beginning to realize that size and veteran presence aren’t everything in the NHL anymore. 

Instead the team has waived Jordin Tootoo, scratched Daniel Cleary on a game to game basis and have added Tomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist to the mix. The signing of Athanasiou is a compliment to the young man. They have commonly been known to draft significant players in late rounds.

As a fourth-round pick, could Athanasiou be the latest diamond in the rough? Check out my story on The Hockey Writers.
