Report: Hudler returning to Wings
Report: Jiri Hudler returning to Detroit Red Wings.
TSN is reporting that Jiri Hudler will be returing to the Detroit Red Wings next season after playing in Russia this season.

Hudler's agent, former NHL defenceman Petr Svoboda, is expected to announce as early as Friday that his client is coming back to North America after one season in the Russian Kontinental Hockey League.

Hudler played with Moscow Dynamo, scoring 19 goals and 35 assists. When Dynamo folded, he was free to return to Detroit.

Hudler, 26, still has a two-year deal with the Red Wings that will pay him $2.875 million per season. He is not eligible to join Detroit during this spring's playoffs because he was not on the club's roster prior to the March trade deadline.
Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
