Ferraro gets deal done

DETROIT >> The Wings came to terms with Landon Ferraro on a one-year, two-way deal for $600,000.

Ferraro will get $175,000 if he’s assigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins.

He’s guaranteed $200,000.

If Ferraro, who turns 24 on Aug. 8, doesn’t make the team out of training camp he’ll have to clear waivers to be assigned to the Griffins.

Playing well enough in a three-game audition to end the regular season, where he notched his first NHL goal in the finale at Carolina, Ferraro dressed for all seven games of Detroit’s first-round playoff series with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Ferraro, who will compete for a fourth line spot in training camp, scored a career-high 27 goals and had 15 assists in 70 games in his fourth season in Grand Rapids.

The Wings, who took Ferraro with their first pick (32nd overall, second round) in 2009, like his speed and forechecking ability.
