Detroit Red Wings bring back LW Daniel Cleary on 1-year contract

DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings have re-signed left wing Daniel Cleary to a one-year contract.

The team announced the move Thursday. The 35-year-old Cleary finished last season with four goals, four assists and 53 penalty minutes in 52 games.

Cleary has spent the last nine seasons with the Red Wings, helping them win the Stanley Cup in 2008. Cleary was bothered by knee problems last season and did not play after January.

Quote of the Day

I think the thing about him, No. 1, he's a competitive guy. We have no issues as far as him fitting in here with this group. No question he's going to be hungry. I think whenever you look at your back end, it's a mix-type thing, and I think [there are] things he can bring to us. He's very mobile, and even though he's not big (6 feet, 201 pounds), he certainly competes. He's a smart player.
