Veteran netminder signs one-year deal
DETROIT - Detroit Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland today announced that the Wings have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with goaltender Chris Osgood. In keeping with club policy, additional terms of the contracts are not available. 
                                                      
"We're very happy to have Chris return to the Red Wings," said Holland. "He's a veteran goaltender who knows what it takes to compete and win championships in a great hockey city like Detroit." Osgood will enter his 12th NHL season and ninth with the Red Wings. He was Detroit's 3rd round selection (54th overall) in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. He followed with one season in the WHL and one with Adirondack of the AHL before joining the Wings for the 1993-94 season.

His eight seasons in Detroit were highlighted by serving as the starting goaltender for the Wings 1998 Stanley Cup Championship and as backup to Mike Vernon for the 1997 title.

Osgood also led the NHL in wins (39) in 1995-96 season and teamed up with Vernon to win the 1996 Jennings Trophy for lowest team GAA. He also made three appearances in the NHL All-Star Game (1996, '97 & '98). Osgood's Detroit totals are 389 games played, a record of 221-110-46 and a 2.40 GAA (30 shutouts). In the playoffs with Detroit, he appeared in 68 games with a 38-25 record and a 2.17 GAA (nine shutouts).

For his NHL career, Osgood boasts 568 games played, a record of 305-177-66, 41 shutouts, a 2.44 GAA and 45 playoff victories (10 shutouts).

Osgood was claimed by the NY Islanders in the 2001 Waiver Draft and traded to St. Louis at the March of 2003 trade deadline. In his one full season with St. Louis and the last NHL season, he posted a 31-25-8 record and a 2.24 GAA-his lowest since winning the Cup in 1998 (2.21).
