ICYMI: Red Wings Re-sign Green; Add Bernier & Vanek
The Detroit Red Wings kept one of their own before National Hockey League free agency began, and then added a pair of players on the opening day of free agency.
On Saturday, the Wings re-signed defenseman Mike Green (pictured) to a 2-year deal worth in excess of $10 million. That's according to the Detroit Free Press.
Then on Sunday, the team added goaltender Jonathan Bernier and forward Thomas Vanek on free agent deals. Bernier reportedly gets a three-year deal while Vanek gets a one-year contract, according to the Detroit News.
Bernier is expected to back up veteran starter Jimmy Howard this coming season. Next season will be Vanek's second tour of duty with the Wings. He was with the team in the 2016-17 season before he was traded to the Florida Panthers at the trade deadline.
