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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
