Derek Meech gets a fresh start at home

It’s not a big signing, but very cool in the former Red Wings department, per TSN’s Darren Dreger:

Derek Meech to Wpg. 2 way contract. $700 (nhl) $105 (ahl)

Meech is from Winnipeg, so he’s going home.

Good deal. I hope he has a good camp and catches on in the 5/6 spot. All things considered, he handled the difficulty of being buried on the Wings depth chart pretty freakin’ well.

Good for him. I hope things turn out better for him there than they did for him in Detroit. He showed was a class act he was throughout.
