Detroit Red Wings re-sign C Joakim Andersson to 2-year deal

The Detroit Red Wings have re-signed centre Joakim Andersson to a two-year contract.

The team did not announce financial terms Tuesday. The 24-year-old Andersson was a restricted free agent.

Andersson played 38 games for the Red Wings in 2012-13, scoring three goals with five assists. The native of Munkedal, Sweden, also appeared in 14 post-season games.

He played in five regular-season games in 2011-12.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
