Detroit Red Wings sign forward Jakub Vrana to 3-year extension

The Red Wings have reportedly locked up key RFA Jakub Vrana on a three-year agreement with an AAV of $5.25 million.

The news comes about a day after reports that both sides were about $2 million apart. Vrana and Detroit were set for an arbitration hearing tomorrow, August 11th.

Vrana was acquired last season in a trade with Washington that sent Anthony Mantha to the Capitals in exchange for the 25-year-old winger and some draft picks. Vrana immediately stepped in as a playmaker, posting 11 points in 11 games (8 goals, 3 assists).

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
