Habs sign Willsie, Wings ink Connor.

The Montreal Canadiens today signed forward Brian Willsie to a one-year, two-way contract, while the Detroit Red Wings signed former Penguin forward Chris Connor to a one-year contract.


  1. Hey Mr. Richardson, do you have any more information about the Wings signing Connor. Im not to worried about the cap hit or anything, just was wondering if this was a two-way contract? They already have 14 forwards under contract, including Mursak and Emmerton

  2. Nevermind, I answered my own question, Conner is signed to a two-way deal, and likely will start the year in Grand Rapids because Emmerton will have to clear waivers in order to be sent down, if im right

  3. My guess is this was primarily a minor league signing. Not sure if he will make much of an impact on the pro roster….

  4. Would make a good call up I imagine. i can’t see him taking on any role that was different with the Pens.
