Wings Ink Coetzee to 3 Year Deal

In the wake of Zetterberg's aggravating groin issues (already?), The Wings went out and signed two prospects today; Tatar earlier and now The Red Deer Scene reports Landon Ferraro's teammate, Willie Coetzee gets a deal...

After an impressive prospects tournament, Coetzee was off to main camp, along with Rebels teammate Landon Ferraro.How did he fare? Well after today, the answer is pretty obvious. The undrafted product of Maple Ridge B.C. is the proud owner of a brand new three year entry level NHL contract.

That's Kenny Holland for you, making dreams come true. Coetzee had a breakout season last year in Red Deer. The 19 year old, who went undrafted in June, put up 18 goals and 42 points. Should be fun to watch probable future Red Wing teammates Ferraro and Coetzee grow together as players...if all goes according to plan.
