from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
Jonas Gustavsson will be back with the Detroit Red Wings for a third season.
General manager Ken Holland told the Free Press today that "it appears we've agreed to a one-year deal."
Gustavsson, 29, was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent July 1, but both sides were interested in extending a relationship that began in the summer of 2012. Gustavsson is coming off a two-year, $3-million deal. His extension is expected to be in the same $1.5-million ballpark.
Holland said Gustavsson has returned to Sweden, but paperwork should be sorted out within days.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
