‘Nothing imminent’ for Brunner: agent

11 Comments

Damien Brunner’s agent has thrown some cold water on a report out of Switzerland that suggested his client was about to sign with the New Jersey Devils.

This morning, Neil Sheehy told The Record’s Tom Gulitti that there’s “nothing imminent” on the signing front.

The Devils obviously have a big hole to fill after sniper Ilya Kovalchuk left for the KHL. Brunner, 27, scored 12 times in 44 games for Detroit during the regular season, then adding a team-high five goals in the playoffs.

Brunner was reportedly looking for $3 -3.5 million per season for 2-3 years from the Red Wings.
