Red Wings sign Christian Fischer to one-year deal

A familiar face is returning to the Detroit Red Wings next season. Late yesterday, the team announced it has signed forward Christian Fischer to a one-year deal worth $1.125 million:

Fischer, who just turned 27 in April, carved himself an important role in Detroit’s bottom-six last season. The Chicago native suited up for 79 games and notched 19 points (5-14–19). Fischer’s new deal is the latest in a string of “low risk” contracts that Steve Yzerman handed out in the first day of NHL free agency.

Fischer will return next season in the same role he played the last — a bottom-six grinder that can offer a steady two-way game. Not to mention, he’s just an all-around cool guy to have in the locker room.
