As first reported by Josh Rimer, the Detroit Red Wings have signed forward Drew Miller to a three-year contract extension.
Miller, 29, had been set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 5. Originally drafted by the then-Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in 2003, he has spent the past four seasons with the Red Wings after having been claimed on waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2009.
In 44 games this season, Miller had four goals and four assists. He broke his hand with four games remaining in the season but returned for Game Two of Detroit’s second-round matchup with the Chicago Blackhawks.
The deal is reportedly for $1.35 million per season, a raise over his $837,500 cap hit on his previous two-year contract.
