Damien Brunner played this past season in the National Hockey League for the Detroit Red Wings.

Damien Brunner was a 26 year old rookie last season and the transition to the NHL was decent to say the least.  Brunner did a nice job fitting  in with Detroit and was a valuable contributor that played as a top six forward for the most part.

Video is 8:24 but worth the look

I would think Detroit will attempt to re-sign him but if he hits the open market he will be a highly sought after forward and will have a number of teams trying to acquire him.

Once again Damien Brunner would look pretty good on most rosters looking for top 6 forward help and would probably help on the PP.   Should we be concerned that he looked good playing on a good Detroit team with a very efficient veteran top 6 forward group?   Absolutely.  That’s why NHL G.M.’s get paid the big bucks.  IMO Damien Brunner would be a good player on any team.
