Detroit Red Wings have made a one-year contract offer to forward Jason Williams, according to sportingnews.com.
Williams, who played for the Wings in 2000-07 before being traded to Chicago, reportedly also is considering joining the Continental Hockey League in Russia. He split last season between Atlanta and Columbus.
Here's a portion of Craig Custance's blog on the subject:
"I'm not going to close the door on (the KHL)," Williams told SportingNews.com. "I know over there they're really trying to compete with the NHL. It's a great league."
Williams still has a home in the Detroit area, one he bought right before he was traded to the Blackhawks. He's renting it out now, and only lived in it for about six months before he left Detroit. The Red Wings would be a natural fit for Williams.
"I'd be going back to a spot I'm familiar with," Williams said. "I know the system they like to play: puck possession, good defense."
