Red Wings agree to terms on one-year deal with tough guy McCarty

DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings re-signed tough guy Darren McCarty to a one-year deal on Wednesday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. McCarty, 36, played in just three games for Detroit last season, registering one assist and two penalty minutes. But he appeared in 17 post-season games during the Red Wings' 2008 Stanley Cup championship run, finishing the playoffs with one goal, one assist and 19 penalty minutes.

McCarty, a six-foot-one, 215-pound native of Burnaby, B.C., spent the first 11 seasons of his NHL career in Detroit before spending two seasons with the Calgary Flames. He rejoined the Red Wings on Feb 25, 2008.

McCarty has 126 goals, 161 assists and 1,452 penalty minutes over 14 NHL seasons.
