Red Wings re-sign Cleary to two-year deal

The Detroit Red Wings announced Monday that the team has re-signed forward Dan Cleary to a $1.325-million, two-year contract.

"Dan's a gritty player and we value what he brings to the team," said Detroit GM Ken Holland. "I'm glad he will be in a Red Wings jersey for the next two seasons."

Cleary, 27, played 77 games and posted 15 points in 2005-06 with the Red Wings.

Cleary was originally signed as a free agent by Detroit on October 4, 2005. Prior to joining Detroit last season, the eight-year veteran made stops in Chicago, Edmonton and Phoenix.

He has skated in 406 NHL games and collected 127 points.
