Custance: Wings indeed sign Harri Sateri

Per The Athletic’s Craig Custance:

Update: MLive’s Ansar Khan confirms:

The Detroit Red Wings signed goaltender Harri Sateri to a one-year contract Sunday.

Sateri, 28, is expected to be the top goalie for the AHL Grand Rapids Griffins. Free agent Patik Rybar will serve as the back-up in all likelihood.

Sateri went 4-4-0, with a 2.92 goals-against average and .911 save percentage last season with the Florida Panthers. He spent most of the season with AHL Springfield, going 14-9-1, with a 2.30 GAA and .927 save percentage.

He spent three seasons in Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League prior to that.
