The Detroit Red Wings signed restricted free agent forward Tomas Tatar to a three-year deal, the team announced Monday.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports that the contract has a $2.75 million annual average.

The 2013-14 campaign was the first full season for Tatar. The 23-year-old forward ranked sixth on the team with 39 points in 73 games, helping Detroit reach the postseason for the 23rd-consecutive season. 

Tatar was drafted by Detroit with the No. 60 overall pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He spent three seasons in the AHL with the Grand Rapids Griffins prior to joining the Red Wings.
