Darren McCarty Back in the Game

From HockeyFights.com,

Darren McCarty has signed with the IHL’s Flint Generals.  The IHL consulted with the NHL before approving the deal.

The Generals play the Muskegon Fury tomorrow night.  McCarty is expected to be in the lineup.

According to a league source, McCarty met recently with the Red Wings’ brass and a plan was outlined to see if he could fast track his way back to the big leagues.

It’s a no-risk proposition for the Wings, who recognize that if McCarty, an unrestricted free agent, still has what it takes to play in the league, he gives them a physical presence and would make Detroit a much unfriendlier opponent.

The scenario is very familiar to the winter of 1996, when the Wings rescued Joe Kocur from the beer leagues of Michigan and installed him on a very effective checking line with Kris Draper and Kirk Maltby during Detroit’s Stanley Cup wins of 1996-97 and 1997-98.
