The Red Wings have re-signed defenseman Jakub Kindl to a four-year contract worth $9.6 million.

Kindl, 26, was a restricted free agent, and is coming off the best season of his young career — playing in 41 games, with four goals and nine assists, with a plus-15 rating.

Signing Kindl leaves the Red Wings with three other restricted free agents — defenseman Brendan Smith, and forwards Gustav Nyquist and Joakim Andersson.

General manager Ken Holland and the rest of his staff are in Newark, N.J., this weekend preparing for Sunday's NHL entry draft.
