The Detroit Red Wings have re-signed backup goaltender Jonas Gustavsson to a one-year contract.

MLive.com and the Macomb Daily report the deal is worth $1.85 million. Gustavsson made $1.5 million in 2013-14, the second year of a two-year deal.

Gustavsson has spent the past two seasons backing up Jimmy Howard in Detroit. He was 16-5-4 in 2013-14 with a 2.63 goals-against average and a save percentage of .907. He was 0-2 with a 2.71 GAA and a .917 save percentage against the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The 29-year-old Swede has a 57-52-20 career record in 141 games for the Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs. He was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
