St Louis Blues The Detroit Red Wings acquired Ville Husso, a St. Louis Blues goalie who was a pending restricted

free agent. Husso was acquired by Detroit with a third-round selection, the 73rd pick in the 2022 NHL Draft. Multiple

reports indicate that Husso has signed a three-year deal with Detroit for $4.75million, which is less than the

salary cap. Husso, 27 years old, had a stellar campaign for the Blues during his second NHL season. His record was

25-7-6, with a.919 save rate and 2.56 goals against average. He replaced Jordan Binnington as the starter in

the regular season and played 40 games. However, he lost the crease to Binnington in playoffs where he struggled.

Husso had a.890 save percentage, and a 3.67 GAA. This includes games where he took over from Binnington

who was injured against the Colorado Avalanche. Husso had been set to become an unrestricted, free agent before

he signed with Detroit. Because of the market's shallowness, Husso was likely to be offered contract offers that

were more than what the Blues would pay for him on a new deal. Red Wings expect to pair him up with Alex Nedeljkovic
