The agent for Jiri Hudler confirmed on Friday that the 26-year-old forward is returning to the Detroit Red Wings next season.
"He wanted to come back to the NHL,'' agent Petr Svoboda said. "He missed the NHL, he missed the Red Wings and the guys.''
Svoboda said Hudler was reassured by general manager Ken Holland and some of the players that he would be welcomed back, after spending last season with Moscow Dynamo of Russia's Kontinental Hockey League.
Done deal. Now everybody can be happy again.
