The Detroit Red Wings agreed to a two-year contract with defenceman Nicklas Lidstrom on Wednesday.
Financial details were not available but the deal means Lidstrom will be under contract with the Red Wings through the 2009-‘10 season.
‘‘Nick has been the best defenceman in the world for several years,’’ Red Wings general manger Ken Holland said in a statement. ‘‘He’s a great captain and role model who does everything right both on and off the ice.
‘‘We’re proud to have him continue as a Red Wing for another two years.’‘
added 2:38pm, Lidstrom will earn US$7.45-million a year under terms of his new deal. He is making $7.6 million this season.
For the folks in the Detroit area, don’t you think it is kind of a slap in the face to hockey fans that this signing has not even been mentioned on the Wings radio flagship station? Things never change at that station except for the “avoid all hockey talk” as directed by their program director.
