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.

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
