After a Stanley Cup win with the Pittsburgh Penguins, 13-year veteran Trevor Daley has signed with the Detroit Red Wings. He has received a three-year deal, $9.5 million contract.

Daley spent the first 11-years of his career with the Dallas Stars after being drafted 43rd in the 2nd round of the 2002 draft.

Daley then spent the first half of the ’15-’16 season, playing for the Chicago Blackhawks, where he played 29 games accumulating 6 assists.

He was then traded to the Penguins for the second part of the season, where he played 53 games accumulating in 6 goals and 16 assists.

He returned to Penguins for the ’16-’17 season, playing an important role in their success as a team collecting 5 goals and 14 assists in 56 games.

In his 13-year career, Daley has played in 894 games during the regular season accumulating 78 goals, 200 assists, and a +/- of 22.

Detroit, this past season, did not make the playoffs for the first time since the 1990 season for what seems like an overwhelming amount of reasons. A lackluster defense had to be at the top of the list of reasons.

”As we headed into free agency, one of the areas we really wanted to address was our blue line,” Red Wings general manager Ken Holland acknowledged. ”We felt we had to do something.”

Daley decided to head to the Motor City after the Red Wings expressed their interest in making him a priority and their plans to get back into the playoffs.

Daley expressed his respect for the team and their history, ultimately signing with them.
