— New Detroit Red Wings forward Stephen Weiss says the franchise's perpetual contender status was a big reason he decided to come to Detroit.
The Red Wings opened training camp Thursday in Traverse City, Mich.
Detroit signed Daniel Alfredsson and Weiss and extended Pavel Datsyuk's deal, giving the franchise a better chance to have success as it shifts to the Eastern Conference this season. The Wings also re-signed veteran forward Danny Cleary on Thursday, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal for $1.75 million.
With established veteran stars like Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg already in the fold, the Red Wings aim to improve their offense from a year ago, when they struggled to score.
— The Detroit Red Wings have agreed to terms with veteran forward Daniel Cleary on a one-year contract.
The club said Thursday it wouldn't disclose the amount of the deal it reached with the 34-year-old unrestricted free agent.
Cleary returns for a ninth season with the Red Wings and 15th in the NHL.
The Newfoundland native has 119 goals and 146 assists over 540 regular-season games with Detroit.
Last season, Cleary was one of four Wings to skate in all 48 regular-season games. He had nine goals and six assists and was second on the club with 10 points in 14 postseason games.
The 6-foot, 208-pound winger also has played for Chicago, Edmonton and Phoenix. A former first-round pick of the Blackhawks, Cleary won the Stanley Cup with Detroit in 2008.
