Red Wings Extend Holmstrom’s Contract

The Detroit Red Wings announced on Saturday that they have agreed to terms with gritty forward Tomas Holmstrom on a three-year contract extension.

As per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not announced.

The 34-year-old Holmstrom is in his 11th season with the Red Wings. He has made a career of going to the edge of the crease to screen goalies, picking up rebound and tip-in goals along the way.

Detroit’s 10th-round selection in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft, Holmstrom has 145 goals and 190 assists in 678 NHL games.

In his career, Holmstrom has claimed three Stanley Cups with Detroit, as well as an Olympic gold medal in 2006 with Team Sweden.
