DETROIT (CP) - The Detroit Red Wings have re-signed forward Jiri Hudler to a US$2.03-million, two-year contract.
The 23-year-old Czech was a restricted free agent. He will earn $880,000 next season and $1.15 million in 2008-09. Hudler led all Detroit rookies in goals (15), assists (10) and points (25) in 76 games last season.
"We felt it was important to get him signed because he's a young player that was able to score 15 goals in part-time duty last season," Red Wings GM Ken Holland said Thursday.
