GM Steve Yzerman has played his cards to close to his chest, as his movement during free agency has been underwhelming. He has since made another depth move, after stealing Patrick Kane away from another stint in New York.

This time, he has signed another Michigan born-forward, who was also a Ranger at one point, Tyler Motte.

Motte, is signing with the Red Wings for an one-year deal, with an AAV of $800K. Motte has played 400 NHL Games, with the Ottawa Senators, Vancouver Canucks, Chicago Blackhawks, New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning.
This is the next Michigander to be led home to play for the Red Wings after he has successfully signed other Michiganders like Dylan Larkin, J.T. Compher, Sheldon Dries, Andrew Copp, Jeff Petry, Jack Campbell, and Alex DeBrincat in their home state.
Motte started his hockey career with Honeybaked U16, and then moving onto the US NDTP in Ann Arbor, before arriving in the NCAA with the Michigan Wolverines.
Motte would selected by the Blackhawks 121st overall in 2012, and would be a part of the package deal which sent him and Artemi Panarin to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
He would later be flipped to the Vancouver Canucks for Thomas Vanek in 2018.
Motte has made his name as a defensive forward in the NHL, a penalty killer. Motte's career totals are as follows: 90 points( 49 G, 41 A) and 110 PIMs during his 400 game career.
