Wings Sign Woolley

via the AP,
The Detroit Red Wings signed Jason Woolley to a one-year contract Saturday, adding a solid veteran to bolster a defense that is without Niklas Kronwall. Woolley is in his 15th NHL season and third with the Red Wings. The former Michigan State star had 42 points in 117 games in two seasons in Detroit. "We're very happy to have Jason return to the Red Wings," general manager Ken Holland said. "He's a veteran defenseman who handles the puck very well and should excel with the new rule changes in the NHL." Detroit sent defenseman Brett Lebda down to Grand Rapids of the AHL to make room on the roster.
