Wings sign Lilja and MacLean
DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland today announced that the club has signed defensemen Andreas Lilja (an-DRAY-uhs LIHL-yuh) and center Don MacLean to one-year contracts. In keeping with club policy, additional terms of the contracts are not available.

"Lilja brings NHL experience along with the size and toughness we needed on our blueline," said Holland. "MacLean gives us depth on offense and will have a chance to compete in training camp. We're happy to have both players signed and look forward to seeing them in the Red Wings' jersey."

Lilja (30, 6-3, 228) was drafted in the second round (54th overall) in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings. He played three seasons for LA before being traded to Florida in November of 2002 and was signed as a free agent by Nashville in July of 2004. In 180 career NHL games, Lilja has eight goals and 19 assists for 27 points and 186 penalty minutes.

MacLean (28, 6-2, 199) was drafted in the second round (33rd overall) in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft by Los Angeles. He was traded to Toronto in February of 2000 and singed by Columbus as a free agent in September of 2002. MacLean has appeared in 29 NHL contests, tallying six goals and three assists for nine points. He led the American Hockey League in assists and points while playing for St. John's in 2001-02.
