DETROIT (AP) -Darren McCarty has returned to the Red Wings, signing a one-year contract with the team four years after he left Detroit for Calgary.

McCarty earned the opportunity to return to Detroit during productive stints with the American Hockey League's Grand Rapids Griffins and the International Hockey League's Flint Generals, Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said on Monday.

McCarty played for Detroit from 1993 to 2004, helping the team win Stanley Cups in 1997, 1998 and 2002. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 35-year-old right wing has been assigned to Grand Rapids on a 14-day conditioning loan.

McCarty was scoreless in 32 games last season, his second with the Calgary Flames.
