Darren McCarty has signed a one year contract with his former club the Detroit Red Wings. 

The three time Stanley Cup winner will spend a week or two playing for their AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids for a conditioning stint.

He spent two years in Calgary before coming back to Detroit.  He should add some grit and depth to their offense.

Darren McCarty has begun what appears to be a comeback to get back into the NHL.  He had been playing in the IHL and now has made the move up the the AHL.  He signed a contract with the Grand Rapids Griffins, the farm team of the Detroit Red Wings, one of McCarty’s former teams.  His last NHL experience was with the Calgary Flames, but injuries forced him to miss most of the season.  Hopefully the reason for the comeback isn’t to pay off gambling debts.  Full Story Here.
