General manager Ken Holland said the 23-year-old Athanasiou needed to travel back from Europe and go through the immigration process, and that he still needed to pass a physical.

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet first reported a one-year deal is at hand. He finished second on the Red Wings in even strength goals (17) in 2016-17 and tallied a pair of overtime winners. If this is all about the dollar amount, Detroit might be looking to make a trade and clear some space for Athanasiou's contract.

DET and RFA forward Andreas Athanasiou have agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $1.387M.

The Red Wings and holdout free agent Andreas Athanasiou were nearing agreement on a new contract Friday, a source confirmed.

Warm temperatures this weekend, big changes next week
Temperatures will tumble from the mid 70s during the peak heating of the weekend to some upper 40s by Wednesday . Folks, we just want to let you know that there is an elevated risk for some brush fires during the day today .

The two sides had been in a standoff since Athanasiou's entry-level contract expired on July 1.

At this point, it appears Athanasiou will agree to a one-year contract that will leave him with arbitration rights next summer. Athanasiou, who set career highs during his sophomore campaign with 18 goals and 11 assists, is expected to rejoin the Red Wings from Switzerland and begin practicing with the team next week.

Athanasiou's deal is worth $1.3875 million, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Through seven games, the Red Wings are 4-3 and enter the weekend off back-to-back losses.
