Red Wings keep Mantha, sign to 4-year deal

NHL

DETROIT — The Detroit Red Wings announced Tuesday that they signed forward Anthony Mantha to a four-year contract.

Mantha, 26, has played five seasons in the NHL — all with Detroit. He scored 16 goals with 22 assists last season, ranking third on the team with 38 points. That was despite playing only 43 games because of injuries.

Mantha scored a career-high 25 goals in 2018-19.

Detroit general manager Steve Yzerman said previously that the team would get deals done with Mantha and fellow forward Tyler Bertuzzi. Bertuzzi ended up being awarded a $3.5 million, one-year contract by an arbitrator, and now the Red Wings have secured Mantha’s services for a while.
