Gilchrist to Return to Wings

Brent Gilchrist, the rugged Red Wings forward who battled injuries for two seasons before finally being healthy for 2000-2001, has accepted his option to come back to the Red Wings next season.

The 34-year-old Gilchrist will make $625,000 next season as a third- and fourth-liner and penalty-killer, as Detroit General Manager Ken Holland will not try to buy out Gilchrist’s contract.

“It was a very easy decision for Brent to make,” Gilchrist’s agent, Barney Harris, said. “Brent likes the Wings and likes the area very much.”
