The Red Wings have re-signed one of their blueline prospects.
Joe Hicketts has signed a new two-year deal with Detroit, the team announced today.
The 23-year-old defenseman was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Red Wings before the 2014-15 season. He has cracked the NHL line-up for 16 games; 11 of which came last season.
In 2018-19, Hicketts registered three assists, two penalty minutes, 18 shots on goal, 26 hits and 39 blocked shots.
