Maltby agrees to one-year deal with Wings
Kirk Maltby agrees to one-year deal with Detroit Red Wings.
The Detroit Red Wings announced Wednesday they have re-signed veteran forward Kirk Maltby to a one-way, two-year contract. No financial terms were released, but ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun is reporting Maltby will make $525,000 if he stays in the NHL, $105,000 if he's in the minors.

Maltby, 37, has won four Stanley Cups with the Wings since arriving during the 1995-96 season. He's tied for eighth all-time in club history with 908 games played. He has 107 goals and 228 points, including 4 goals and 6 points in 52 games last season.

In 1,072 NHL games, Maltby, a third-round choice of the Edmonton Oilers in 1992, has 128 goals and 260 points.
Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
