Red Wings officially bring aboard Swedish G Magnus Hellberg

More Swedish blood in the organization!

Michael Whitaker

The Detroit Red Wings have once again gone mining for Swedish gold. 

They've officially inked Swedish goaltender Magnus Hellberg to a one-year contract, as announced by the team's official Twitter feed earlier this afternoon: 

The 31-year-old Hellberg was originally drafted by the Nashville Predators in 2011 with the 38th overall selection. He would then eventually find his way to the Big Apple, being dealt to the New York Rangers in 2015 in exchange for a 6th-round pick.

He's appeared in four total NHL games, amassing a 1-1 record with a 2.71 goals against average.  

However, the bulk of his professional career has come suiting up in the KHL, where he's 81-64-14 with a 2.00 goals against average and .927 save percentage.
