Red Wings sign Osgood to one-year contract
August 8, 2005, at 04:56 PM ET
Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The Detroit Red Wings announced Monday that they have signed veteran goaltender Chris Osgood to a one-year contact. As per team policy, financial terms of the deal were not released.

Osgood returns to the team where he won a Stanley Cup in 1998, as he spent eight years with the Red Wings (1993-2001). He was also a backup to Mike Vernon on the 1997 championship team.

"We're very happy to have Chris return to the Red Wings," said general manager Ken Holland. "He's a veteran goaltender who knows what it takes to compete and win championships in a great hockey city like Detroit." In 1995-96, Osgood led the NHL in wins (39) and paired up with Vernon to capture the Jennings trophy for lowest team goals against average.

A three-time All-Star, Osgood is 221-110-46 with 30 shutouts and a 2.40 GAA while with Detroit. In the postseason with the Red Wings, he is 38-25 with a 2.17 GAA and nine shutouts.

Osgood, an 11-year veteran, was drafted by Detroit in the third round (54th overall) of the 1991 NHL Draft. He was claimed by the New York Islanders in the 2001 Waiver Draft and traded to St. Louis at the March of 2003 trade deadline.

In 568 career games, Osgood is 305-177-66 with 41 shutouts and a 2.44 goals against average.
