The Detroit Red Wings agreed to terms with forward Todd Bertuzzi on a two-year, $3.875 million contract on Wednesday.
The two-time All-Star signed on with the Red Wings as an unrestricted free agent last year and finished the season with 18 goals and 26 assists for 44 points in 82 games. He added 11 points in 12 playoff games.
''Playing with guys like Pavel Datsyuk and (Henrik Zetterberg) was great, but so was just being able to fit into the system,'' Bertuzzi told the Detroit Free Press. ''It's just a great group of guys to be around.''
The 13-year veteran was drafted in the first round of the 1993 Entry Draft by the New York Islanders.
Bertuzzi has also had stops in Vancouver, Florida, Anaheim and Calgary.
