It's been a busy offseason for Detroit Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman, and now another new member of the team is in the fold. 

The team has announced that forward Carter Rowney has been signed to a one year contract; he's previously played with the Pittsburgh Penguins (winning the Stanley Cup in 2017) and the Anaheim Ducks. 

While no financial terms were disclosed, the deal is worth a reported $825,000. 

Per the Detroit Red Wings official website:

"Rowney, 32, was limited to 19 games with the Anaheim Ducks in 2020-21 due to injury, recording six points (0-6-6) and two penalty minutes. Rowney was coming off his two most productive NHL campaigns prior to last season, totaling 20 points (7-13-20) in 62 games with Anaheim in 2018-19 and nearly matching that the following year with 19 points (8-11-19) in 71 games in 2019-20. The 6-foot-1, 208-pound forward has skated in 223 NHL games since 2016-17 with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ducks, totaling 57 points (20-37-57) and 36 penalty minutes. Rowney also won a Stanley Cup championship with the Penguins as a rookie in 2016-17, chipping in seven points (3-4-7) in 27 regular-season games and adding three points (0-3-3) in 20 postseason contests."
