DETROIT (AP) - Left wing Brendan Shanahan re-signed with the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday.
Shanahan, a 500-goal scorer and important contributor to Detroit's Stanley Cup wins in 1997, 1998 and 2002, signed for one year with a player option
for an additional year.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Shanahan was the only Red Wings player to appear in all 82 games last season. The 35-year-old Ontario native scored his 550th career goal Jan. 3
against Anaheim. He led the club in penalty minutes with 117.
Shanahan originally was acquired by Detroit from the Hartford Whalers on Oct. 9, 1996 along with Brian Glynn in exchange for Keith Primeau, Paul
Coffey and a first-round pick.
