Niederbach was not signed by the Red Wings prior to his NHL rights expiring Saturday, per CapFriendly.

Niederbach has never left his native Sweden during the course of his professional and junior careers, a trend that will likely continue following the Red Wings' decision to leave him unsigned. Selected by Detroit in the second round of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, the 22-year-old winger is unlikely to get to the NHL.
