RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Damien Brunner.
Brunner led the Swiss-A league in scoring last season with 24 goals and 60 points in 45 games, and Wings head coach Mike Babcock has suggested that he might immediately be a top-six forward in Detroit with his combination of top-end speed and plus offensive skills. There's plenty of wiggle room in that, however, as Brunner signed a two-way contract and could spend time at Grand Rapids if he doesn't adjust quickly to the North American game in training camp. With Jiri Hudler's departure in free agency and nothing in the way of proven top-six options inked during the summer, the door is open for Brunner to make an immediate impact.
