Red Wings sign D Huskins, recall F Nyquist

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Red Wings have signed 33-year-old defenseman Kent Huskins to a one-year contract.

The team announced the move Tuesday before the club's home opener against the Dallas Stars.

Detroit also recalled forward Gustav Nyquist from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League and put right wing Todd Bertuzzi and defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo on the injured reserve list. Bertuzzi has been battling an illness, and Colaiacovo has an undisclosed upper body injury.

Huskins has appeared in 299 NHL games with Anaheim, San Jose and St. Louis. He has 13 goals and 54 assists with 169 penalty minutes.

Also Tuesday, longtime forward Tomas Holmstrom announced his retirement after 15 seasons with the Red Wings. He helped Detroit win four Stanley Cup titles with his hard-nosed play in front of the net.

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.
