Red Wings re-sign Taro Hirose, Adam Erne to one-year contract extensions

It will be at least one more year of forwards Adam Erne and Taro Hirose in Detroit. The Red Wings announced Thursday morning that both forwards have signed one-year contract extensions:

Financial terms of both contracts have not yet been disclosed.

Update: Capfriendly has Erne at $997,500

The Red Wings acquired Adam Erne, 25, from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft. He suited up for 56 games in Detroit last season, putting up five points (2-3—5) before a lower-body injury ended his season.

Hirose, 24, signed with Detroit as a free agent in March of 2019. He’s played 36 games in the NHL since then, putting up 14 points (3-11—14). Hirose has since spent time in Grand Rapids, where he put decent numbers — including 22 assists in 35 contests. Hirose, a former Big Ten Player of the Year, appeared in 106 games for the Michigan State Spartans where he posted 116 points (33-83—116).
