The Detroit Red Wings have made qualifying offers to seven restricted free agents, retaining their rights. The Red Wings qualified forwards Tomas Tatar, Riley Sheahan, Landon Ferraro, Mitch Callahan and Andrej Nestrasil and defensemen Danny DeKeyser and Adam Almquist. The club did not qualify forwards Cory Emmerton, Trevor Parkes and Willie Coetzee and defensemen Gleason Fournier and Max Nicastro, relinquishing their rights. Almquist, 23, recently signed a two-year contract with the Kontinental Hockey League's Severestal Cherepovets because he realized his chances of making the Red Wings roster were slim and he no longer wanted to play in the AHL with the Grand Rapids Griffins.
