Dandenault Inks One-Year Deal with Wings

The Detroit Red Wings signed restricted free agent swingman Mathieu Dandenault to a one-year deal on Tuesday. Dandenault will reportedly earn $1.6 million.

The deal allows Dandenault to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of next season because he will be a ten-year NHL veteran making below the league average salary.

Dandenault began his career playing right wing before being shifted to defense. During the 2003-04 season he also spent time playing center.

Detroit general manager Ken Holland would not rule out the possibility of negotiating a long-term deal with Dandenault at a later date.
