An arbitrator ruled that the Detroit Red Wings will give forward Tyler Bertuzzi a one-year, $3.5-million contract, the team announced Tuesday.

On Sunday, Bertuzzi - who was a restricted free agent - reportedly became the first player this offseason to have a salary arbitration hearing. He filed for $4.25 million in the proceedings, while the team did so for $3.15 million.

The 25-year-old tied a career high with 21 goals and set a new personal best with 48 points over 71 games this past season.

Bertuzzi is coming off a two-year pact that carried a cap hit of $1.4 million.

He's played two full campaigns and parts of four seasons with the Red Wings, who drafted him 58th overall in 2013.
