DETROIT (CP) - The Detroit Red Wings have signed unrestricted free-agent defenceman Brian Rafalski to a US$30-million, five-year contract.

The 33-year-old Rafalski had a career-high 55 points (5-47) in 82 games with the New Jersey Devils last season, the only NHL club he's ever played for.

The Wings lost free-agent defenceman Mathieu Schneider to Anaheim earlier Sunday but quickly replaced him.
