DETROIT (WXYZ) -- The Red Wings signed forward Turner Elson and traded for goaltender Tom McCollum on Saturday.

Elson spent the 2016-17 season with the Colorado Avalanche organization, playing 13 games for AHL San Antonio. Elson has one career NHL appearance, April 9, 2016, for the Calgary Flames.
