The Detroit Red Wings announced the signing of forwards Adam Erne and Taro Hirose to one-year contract extensions on Thursday.
The #RedWings today agreed to terms with left wings Adam Erne and Taro Hirose on one-year contract extensions.

Financial terms were not announced because who would want to know that in a salary cap league?
The pair were set to become restricted free agents after receiving qualifying offers from the team yesterday.
As I mentioned yesterday, I don’t like the idea of bringing Erne back. I don’t think he offered as much as the Red Wings hoped when they acquired him from Tampa Bay last summer. That said, at a cheap enough salary that could become irrelevant.
These signings – combined with the Red Wings not giving qualifying offers to Brendan Perlini, Christoffer Ehn, and Madison Bowey – leave the team with three pending restricted free agents.
