DETROIT -- The  Red Wings and Todd Bertuzzi have agreed to a two-year contract.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland confirmed the deal Wednesday night.

Bertuzzi had 18 goals and 44 points last season, ranking fifth on the team. He played all 82 games in a regular-season -- one of three Red Wings to do so -- for the first time since 2005-06. The right winger had a career-high 11 playoff points, helping Detroit advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

“We were really happy with what Todd brought to our team last season,” Holland said. “He added a physical dimension, became a solid net-front presence and fit in real well with the guys in our locker room. We’re excited to have him back.”

Bertuzzi has 273 goals and 668 points in his career, playing for the New York Islanders, Vancouver, Florida, Anaheim, Calgary and Detroit.

Nicklas Lidstrom and Tomas Holmstrom, who could have tested the free agency period, beginning July 1, were re-signed by the Wings earlier this month.
