The Detroit Red Wings have signed defenseman Max Nicastro to a NHL entry-level contract, the same team that selected him in the 2008 NHL Draft.
Nicastro spent two seasons in the USHL with the Chicago Steel (2007-09). As a rookie, he collected 20 points (6g, 14a) in 58 games with the Steel. He also added three points (1g, 2a) in seven playoff games. Following that season, he was selected by the Detroit Red Wings in the third round (91st overall) in the 2008 NHL Draft.
