Detroit Red Wings re-sign forward Jiri Hudler to two-year contract

The 23-year-old Czech was a restricted free agent. He will earn $880,000 next season and $1.15 million in 2008-09. Hudler led all Detroit rookies in goals (15), assists (10) and points (25) in 76 games last season.

"We felt it was important to get him signed because he's a young player that was able to score 15 goals in part-time duty last season," Red Wings GM Ken Holland said Thursday.
