The Detroit Red Wings re-signed forward Joakim Andersson on Friday.
The 26-year-old, selected by the Red Wings 88th overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, will reportedly receive $815,000 for the one-year deal. Scheduled to become a restricted free agent on July 1, Andersson will instead be an unrestricted free agent next summer.
Andersson broke into the Red Wings lineup during the lockout-shortened 2013 season after playing five games with Detroit the previous year. In 176 career games, Andersson has scored 14 goals and added 19 assists in a bottom-six role. He played parts of three seasons with the Grand Rapids Griffins after turning pro for the 2010-11 season.
The $815,000 contract is low enough that it would come off the books entirely if Andersson is demoted to the Griffins next season.
