Reports: Daniel Cleary leaving Red Wings for Flyers
34-year-old Cleary set to sign 3-year deal with Flyers
Daniel Cleary is leaving the Detroit Red Wings to play with the Philadelphia Flyers, according to multiple reports.
Cleary and the Red Wings reportedly were working on a new contract but the 34-year-old opted for another team.
According to reports, the winger will sign a three-year deal with the Flyers that will pay him $2.75 million a year. The Flyers will have to clear some cap space before they can officially sign the veteran forward.
Cleary came to Detroit in 2005 and helped the Red Wings win a Stanley Cup in 2008. He scored a career-high 26 goals in that Cup year.
This past season, Cleary appeared in all 48 games with Detroit, notching 9 goals and 6 assists.
