Red Wings re-sign Marc Staal; Canucks to buy out Virtanen

Defenseman Marc Staal is staying put in Detroit, while the Vancouver Canucks placed forward Jake Virtanen on waivers on Sunday for the purpose of buying out the final year of his contract.

The Red Wings announced reaching an agreement with Staal. A person with direct knowledge of the contract told The Associated Press it's a one-year deal worth $2 million. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team did not release the contract's value.

The 34-year-old Staal returns to Detroit for a second year after spending his first 13 NHL seasons with the New York Rangers. He had three goals and 10 points in 56 games last season, and is highly valued for his experience and leadership overseeing a young, rebuilding team.
