Brooks the latest Detroit signee

The Detroit Red Wings signed center Brendan Brooks, who has not played an NHL game, to a one-year contract on Monday.

Brooks, 27, had 14 goals and 27 points last year for the Peoria Rivermen in the AHL. In 204 AHL games, he has recorded 40 goals and 40 assists. He has also played in the AHL with Worcester, Manchester and Lowell, in the ECHL with Mississippi, Dayton, Macon, Reading and Peoria as well as with Quad City in the UHL and Cincinnati of the old IHL.

The 5-foot-9, 185-pound center likely will compete for one of Detroit's final roster spots during the preseason.
