After reports that Daniel Cleary was leaving the Detroit Red Wings to play with the Philadelphia Flyers, the team announced Thursday that the veteran forward agreed to a one-year deal with the Red Wings.
Cleary came to Detroit in 2005 and helped the Red Wings win a Stanley Cup in 2008. He scored a career-high 26 goals in that Cup year.
This past season, Cleary appeared in all 48 games with Detroit, notching 9 goals and 6 assists.
Cleary is expected to join the Red Wings in Traverse City, Mich., for the remainder of the team’s training camp.
