Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Detroit Red Wings center Gustav Nyquist has agreed to a two-year contract.

Financial terms of the deal for the restricted free agent were not disclosed, but the Detroit Free Press has reported it to be worth $1.9 million.

Nyquist appeared in 22 games during the shortened 2013 season and posted three goals with three assists for six points. He made his NHL debut in 2011-12 and notched a goal with six assists in 18 games.
