Red Wings sign Swedish Goaltending Prospect

The Detroit Red Wings will have added some goaltending depth for training camp this fall, signing Swedish goaltender Stefan Liv to a one-year contract.
Liv was a fourth-round pick by the Red Wings in 2000.
Wings general manager Ken Holland is in Latvia for the World Hockey Championship and told Swedish reporters on Saturday that Liv will compete for a spot on the team's roster next season.
If he doesn't earn a spot on the roster, he'll play for Grand Rapids in the AHL.
Liv has spent the last seven seasons playing for HV71 of the Swedish Elite League, and is a three-time member of Sweden's national team for the World Championships and was a reserve for the Swedes at this year's Olympics.
