Detroit – Andrew Cope is coming home.

The Ann Arbor native, who attended Skyline and the University of Michigan, signed a five-year, $28.125 million contract Wednesday with Red Wings, shortly after starting an unrestricted free agency.

“It’s not just a one or two year decision, it’s a five year decision. KOP TSN . said. “I really love where this team is headed, I just want to be a part of it in the future.”

Midfielder Andrew Cobb scored 53 points in 72 games between the Winnipeg Jets and New York Rangers last season.

Copp was the first signing, but there was a lot going on as the day progressed.

General Manager Steve Wasserman has been busy, reportedly adding veteran defender Oli Mata (one year/$2.25 million) and Ben Chiaroot (four years/$19 million, $4.75 million).

Mata, 27, spent last season with the Los Angeles Kings, with one goal and seven assists for eight points in 66 games, with a 17-plus rating.
