A new wings signing: DETROIT Center Brendan Brooks has signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings. Brooks hasn't played a game in the N-H-L. The 27-year-old Brooks had 14 goals and 27 points last year for the Peoria Rivermen in the American Hockey League. He has recorded 40 goals and 40 assists in 204 minor league games. Brooks likely will compete for one of Detroit's final roster spots during the preseason.
