What seemed like a fantasy to Andy Delmore has turned into reality after the Windsor native signed with the Detroit Red Wings Monday.
The smooth-skating defenceman inked a one-year pact with the Wings worth about $450,000 US.
“It’s been a dream of mine to play for Detroit,” the 28-year-old Delmore said.
