Devils on the verge of signing Damien Brunner
The Devils appear to be closing in on signing unrestricted free agent forward Damien Brunner, according to a report out of Switzerland.
Nicola Berger of the Swiss newspaper Neue Luzerner Zeitung reported this morning that Brunner “appears to be headed” to the Devils and “they’re doing a lot of background work on him right now.” The 27-year-old native of Zurich Switzerland had 12 goals and 14 assists in 44 regular seaosn games for the Red Wings last season. He added five goals and four assists in 14 playoff games.
Prior to joining the Red Wings after the owners’ lockout, Brunner (5-11, 184 pounds) had 25 goals and 32 assists in 33 games for Zug in Switzerland in 2012-13.
Brunner was 2-for-7 on shootouts with two game-deciding goals in 2012-13.
