Red Wings re-sign RFA forward Veleno to 1-year deal

The Detroit Red Wings re-signed restricted free-agent forward Joe Veleno to a one-year deal worth $825,000, the team announced Tuesday.

He can become an RFA once again after his new deal expires and will be due a qualifying offer of $866,000, according to PuckPedia.

Veleno established new career highs in goals (nine), points (20), and games played (81) in 2022-23 while averaging just under 13 minutes of ice time per contest.

The 23-year-old made waves in international waters this spring. He was suspended for five games at the 2023 IIHF World Championship after stomping on Winnipeg Jets winger Nino Niederreiter with his skate during a preliminary round contest between Canada and Switzerland.

The Red Wings selected Veleno with the 30th overall pick at the 2018 NHL Draft after he totaled 79 points in 64 games in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
