Red Wings reunite with Williams
DETROIT -- The Red Wings have added a second forward to their roster this week with the signing of veteran right wing Jason Williams.

Williams joins Patrick Eaves -- who also signed a one-year free agency deal with the Red Wings on Tuesday -- as veteran forwards brought in to potentially be counted on to file the roles of departed wingers Mikael Samuelsson (Vancouver) and Jiri Hudler (Moscow Dynamo). 

Williams, 28, spent the first six seasons of his NHL career with the Red Wings, scoring 49 goals with 67 assists during that time. He was traded to Chicago for forward Kyle Calder at the 2006-07 trade deadline.

Williams originally signed with the Red Wings as a free agent in September 2000. In 233 games with the Red Wings (2000-07), he colelcted 49 goals and 67 assists.

Since then, Williams has played in Atlanta and Columbus.

In 376 career NHL games, Williams, a native of London, Ontario, has 85 goals and 120 assists. He also played 128 games for Cincinnati in American Hockey League for current Red Wings coach Mike Babcock.
