DETROIT (AP) -Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland says he has signed veteran forward Todd Bertuzzi.
Bertuzzi signed a $1.5 million, 1-year contract Tuesday with Detroit, where the 34-year-old played during the 2006-07 season.
The Red Wings fell one win short of repeating as Stanley Cup champions in June, then lost Marian Hossa, Mikael Samuelsson and Tomas Kopecky to free agency.
Bertuzzi scored 15 goals and had 44 points last season for the Calgary Flames. Holland says Bertuzzi's back problems appear to be over and the team's medical staff was impressed with his condition during a physical.
