The Detroit Red Wings agreed to terms with left wing Tomas Tatar on a three-year contract, the team announced Monday. Financial terms were not disclosed, but Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reported the average annual value to be $2.75 million.

Tatar, 23, completed his first full NHL season in 2013-14 and ranked sixth on the Red Wings with 39 points (19 goals, 20 assists) in 73 games. He represented Slovakia at the 2014 Sochi Olympics and had one goal and one assist in four games.

Selected by Detroit in the second round (No. 60) of the 2009 NHL Draft, Tatar has 24 goals and 23 assists in 100 games for the Red Wings.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
