DÉTROIT - Les Red Wings de Detroit ont accordé un contrat de deux ans au défenseur Brendan Smith, mardi.
Smith, 24 ans, a disputé 34 matches avec les Red Wings en 2012-13. En 48 matches en carrière, il a fourni un but et 15 points. Lors des dernières séries il a marqué deux fois et a récolté cinq points, en 14 matches.
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.
