Just days before he was set to become an unrestricted free agent, the Detroit Red Wings announced the signing of forward Drew Miller to a one-year contract extension.
Per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not anounced. Reportedly, the contract carries a $1.025 million salary cap hit.
Limited by a pair of major injuries, Miller, 32, played just 28 games for the Red Wings over the 2015-16 season. In a penalty-killing role, he scored one goal and one assist. In 449 games with Detroit over nine seasons, he has 100 points.
Originally drafted by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft (sixth round, 186th overall) out of Michigan State University, Miller was acquired by the Red Wings from the Tampa Bay Lightning via waivers on November 11, 2009.
