The Detroit Red Wings have locked up a piece of their future.
The 19-year old native of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada grew up idolizing former Red Wings netminder and current goaltending development coach Chris Osgood. Ironically, it was Osgood who scouted Paterson during the Spirit's playoff run in 2012.
Paterson was also Team Canada's third goaltender at the 2012 World Junior Championships, and could very well be the starter at this year's WJC in Sweden.
He has posted a 47-39-5-5 with a 3.47 GAA and a .903 save percentage in his career with the Spirit.
