Daniel Cleary is heading back to Detroit after all.

The Red Wings announced on Thursday that they have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the unrestricted free agent forward and he will be flying to Traverse City, Michigan to join the club for camp.

The news comes just days after reports surfaced that he would be with the Philadelphia Flyers on a tryout contract.

Detroit general manager Ken Holland said the deal is worth $1.75 million.

The 34-year-old Cleary had nine goals and 15 points for the Red Wings in the lockout-shortened season last year.

In his career, Cleary has 160 goals and 377 points in 869 games.
