Red Wings Sign Andrew Copp to Five-Year Deal

Andrew Copp

The Detroit Red Wings have made a big splash to open free agency.

The team has announced the signing of forward Andrew Copp to a five-year deal worth $5.625-million.

Copp, 28, was a pivotal part of New York's playoff run in 2022, scoring six goals and 14 points en route to an Eastern Conference final run. He had a career-high 53 points in 72 games with Winnipeg and New York, helping him build a nice case for a solid contract. 

A fourth-round pick in 2013, Copp has 202 points in 483 career games. His real value, though, is being a big body that's hard to take off the puck and can play a strong defensive game.
