Sharks: Wings Send Stuart Back To Old Team

Jun 10, 2012 7:21 PM EST

The Red Wings gave Brad Stuart and the Sharks a head start on completing a reunion for next season.

Detroit sent the potential unrestricted free agent defenseman back to his original team in San Jose on Sunday in exchange for forward Andrew Murray and a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2014.

Stuart had made clear that he wanted to be closer to his family, which still lives in San Jose, and now he gets three weeks to negotiate with the Sharks before possibly becoming a free agent July 1.
