Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland announced today that the club has agreed to terms with forward Darren McCarty on a one-year contract. In keeping with team policy, additional terms of the deal were not disclosed.

McCarty, 36, re-joined the Red Wings organization in February of 2008 after spending two seasons with the Calgary Flames. A 15-year NHL veteran, he played in three games for Detroit last season registering 1 assist and 2 PIM. McCarty also appeared in 17 postseason games during the Red Wings’ 2008 Stanley Cup championship run. He finished the playoffs with 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist) and 19 PIM. McCarty spent the first 11 seasons of his NHL career in Detroit.

Good! I am glad thats a done deal. Its seems only right to have him back for a year.
I hope he gets his personal life together though.... It would be to sad to see such a great player fall to pieces once he quites playing.
