Brome scored two goals (one a shootout) during Tuesday’s intrasquad scrimmage.
General manager Steve Yzerman signed Brome, an undrafted free agent, in April.
Brome, 26, has moved up on the depth chart in the last week. With Darren Helm (unfit to play) unavailable Tuesday, Brome played on a line with Luke Glendening and Adam Erne and was effective on that checking unit.
“He continues to do a good job,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “Impact on the game is a big part of when you watch. You can have a good skill set, but if your impact on the game is negligible, then it doesn’t really help. His impact in practice and then in the game has been pretty positive.”
Brome’s talks with former Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall appeared to convince Brome it was time to test himself in the NHL.
A steady career in the Swedish Elite League had put Brome on the Wings’ radar.
“I felt like I’m more ready,” Brome said of his decision to come to North America. “I’ve grown as a player and developed a lot back home in Sweden. At this point in my career, I really think there’s a good chance to come over here and fight for a spot on the team.
