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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
