DETROIT -- The Red Wings announced today that the club has signed free agent forward Todd Bertuzzi to a one-year contract.  In accordance with team policy, additional terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Bertuzzi, 34, was originally a first round draft pick (23rd overall) of the New York Islanders in 1993.

The Sudbury, Ontario native spent last season with the Calgary Flames where he posted 44 points (15-29—44) in 66 games.

Bertuzzi returns to Detroit for the second time in his career, having played in eight regular-season games (2-2—4) and 16 playoff games (3-4—7) for the Red Wings in 2006-07 after he was acquired in a trade with the Florida Panthers.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
