DETROIT -- An arbitrator has awarded Russia-bound forward Jiri Hudler a two-year deal worth US$5.75 million if he ever returns to play for the Detroit Red Wings.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said Monday the deal gives the 25-year-old Hudler $2.75 million in the first season and $3 million in the second.

Hudler recently signed a $10-million, two-year deal with Dynamo Moscow of the Russian Kontinental Hockey League, where he will play next season.

The agreement maintains Detroit's rights to Hudler should he return from Russia. Hudler had 23 goals and 34 assists for the Red Wings last season.
