Cleary in camp for Red Wings after all
DETROIT, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - On Tuesday, Red Wing Dan Cleary reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with the Philadelphia Flyers, but when Detroit camp opened Thursday in Traverse City, Cleary was there, in the same place he's been the last nine seasons.
He watched the workout Thursday as the team hit the ice for the first time.
Cleary will be in uniform Friday.
What happened? In a rarity in sports, he had a change of heart.
He's 34 years old, and left a 3-year deal, worth about $8 million on the table for a 1 year, $1.75 million deal with the Red Wings.
