The Detroit Red Wings are bringing back defenseman Marc Staal on a one-year contract extension.

The deal is worth $2 million, according to Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.

The blue-liner collected 10 points while playing all 56 games this past season. Detroit controlled 43.79% of the expected goals while the defensive-minded Staal was on the ice in 2021, according to Natural Stat Trick.

The 2020-21 campaign was the 34-year-old's first with the Red Wings. Detroit acquired him in a trade with the New York Rangers in September.

Staal played his first 13 seasons with New York, which selected him 12th overall in 2005.
