The Detroit Red Wings have signed defenseman Trevor Daley to a three-year contract at the start of the NHL Free Agency period.

Daley, 33, is a solid puck moving defenseman who was a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins during their back-to-back Stanley Cup campaigns over the last two seasons. He put up 11 points in 36 games over the last two playoff seasons.

Daley is a 14 year veteran who spent most of his career with the Dallas Stars, he also spent time with Chicago and the aforementioned Pittsburgh Penguins.

A $3 million deal for Daley puts Detroit in a cap bind with only around $4 million in cap space left for their restricted free agents, most notably Tomas Tatar, Xavier Ouellet and Andreas Athanasiou.

Helene St. James is also reporting the Red Wings have signed Luke Witkowski to a small deal (around $750,000) if Witkowski is not with the pro club his cap hit could be buried in the minor leagues.

The Red Wings seem to be done on the open market and will no look in house to re-signing their own players to prepare for the 2017-18 season.
