Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) is expected to be fine for the start of training camp.

"(Trainer) Piet Van Zant texted him two days ago," Red Wings GM Ken Holland said regarding Weiss. "He said he's feeling great, he's training hard; he's played some shinny (pick-up hockey)." Weiss had just four points and 12 penalty minutes in 26 games in 2013-14. After a lackluster summer for Detroit, they'll be counting on Weiss to bounce back.

The Detroit Red Wings have officially re-signed Thomas McCollum.

McCollum got a two-way contract if the earlier reports are accurate, which obviously makes sense given that he's likely to start the season in the minors. McCollum will probably be called up if Jimmy Howard or Jonas Gustavsson get hurt, which is likely to happen at some point during the 2014-15 campaign given their histories.

Daniel Cleary is hoping to bounce back in 2014-15.

Cleary inked a one-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings after recording just eight points in 52 games last season. "My program has been one of loyalty, and there's good things and bad things that go with that," Red Wings GM Ken Holland said on re-signing Cleary despite his struggles. "Way more good, in my opinion. I reached out to a lot of people before signing Dan, and he's very popular in our organization and with our on-ice leaders." Perhaps Holland will be rewarded for taking a chance on Cleary, but we doubt it. We think Cleary's days as a reliable secondary scorer are over.

Daniel Cleary has agreed to a one-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings.

Cleary will earn $1.5 million in base salary, but he can make an extra $1 million in bonuses. He had four goals and eight points in 52 games in 2013-14.

Alexei Marchenko is looking to impress during development camp after missing the second half of the season due to a high-ankle sprain.

Marchenko was selected as an AHL All-Star prior to the injury. It was his first season in the AHL after getting his start with the KHL's CSKA Moscow. He might prove to be a valuable defender for the Red Wings down the road, but he doesn't have much offensive upside.
Jul 6 - 9:23 AM

Anthony Mantha is the headliner at the Wings' development camp currently ongoing at Traverse City Michigan.

Mantha, the Candian Hockey League's Player of the Year, had an outstanding 2013-14 season scoring 57 goals and registering 120 points in 75 games with Val d'Or of the QMJHL. He has a legitimate chance to crack the Detroit lineup this upcoming season and could even start on one of the Wings' scoring lines. Keep an eye on him this week.
Jul 5 - 9:10 AM

The Detroit Red Wings were ultimately unable to add a top-four defenseman on the free agent market on July 1.

"We went in looking to add a right-hand defenseman and we felt we made very competitive offers," Red Wings GM Ken Holland said. "For various reasons, they chose to go elsewhere." Detroit brought back Kyle Quincey instead. The Red Wings haven't been able to lure top-tier free agents for quite some time now and it looks like this summer will continue that trend.
Jul 2 - 9:39 AM

The Detroit Red Wings signed Kyle Quincey to a two-year, $8.5 million contract on July 1.

That's about $1 million more than his previous two-year deal with the Red Wings. Quincey's offensive game seems like it's slipping a bit, but a decent depth option considering his solid PIM (88 PIM in 2013-14).
Jul 1 - 7:32 PM

Andy Miele has signed with the Detroit Red Wings.

He'll probably be in the minors next season with Grand Rapids after he skated in 70 games with the Coyotes' AHL affiliate in Portland in 2013-14. He had 27 goals and 72 points last year and he earned two assists in seven NHL outings.
Jul 1 - 5:23 PM

Petr Mrazek signed a one-year contract extension with Detroit.

He's slated to spend the 2014-15 season in the minors with Grand Rapids, where he established himself as one of the top goalies last year. He posted a 22-9-1 record with a 2.10 goals-against average (second in the league) and a 0.924 save percentage (third in the league) during the 2013-14 season in the AHL.
Jul 1 - 5:17 PM

Detroit has signed Kevin Porter to a two-way contract.

He split the 2013-14 campaign between the Buffalo Sabres and the Rochester Americans of the AHL. The Detroit-native picked up 19 goals and 36 points in 50 games last year in the minors.
Jul 1 - 3:44 PM

Riley Sheahan's new two-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings comes with a $950,000 annual cap hit.

Sheahan had nine goals and 15 assists in 42 games with Detroit in 2013-14. He's a good bet to record 40-50 points next season.
Jul 1 - 11:33 AM

Riley Sheahan has agreed to a two-year contract extension with Detroit.

The financial terms of the deal are not yet known. Sheahan established himself with the Red Wings last season by scoring nine goals and 24 points in 42 games. He would have become a restricted free agent at noon.
Jul 1 - 10:51 AM

The Detroit Red Wings would like to sign a top-four defenseman over the summer.

Some potential candidates include Matt Niskanen, Dan Boyle, and Christian Ehrhoff. The Red Wings have enough cap space to compete for any of them, but they're traditionally conservative when it comes to the free agent market. With that in mind, it wouldn't be surprising to see them outbid for Niskanen's services.
Jul 1 - 10:00 AM

Cory Emmerton didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Red Wings.

He spent most of the 2013-14 season with AHL Grand Rapids and signed a one-year deal with the KHL's Sochi Leopards in May. Detroit also didn't retain the rights to forwards Trevor Parkes and Willie Coetzee as well as defensemen Gleason Fournier and Max Nicastro.
