The Detroit Red Wings signed veteran forward Kirk Maltby to a one-year, two-way deal on Wednesday.
The contract is expected to be for the league minimum of $500,000. Maltby would earn $105,000 while playing in the AHL, the maximum allowed for players on a two-way contract.
Maltby is likely to start the season in Grand Rapids as there are already six forwards fighting for three spots on the Red Wings' fourth line. Justin Abdelkader, Darren Helm, Patrick Eaves, Kris Draper, Drew Miller and Mattias Ritola are all fighting for a spot in the lineup, with either Miller or Ritola expected to be moved before the start of the season.
