Lidstrom to Return to Red Wings

Captain Nicklas Lidstrom will return to the Detroit Red Wings for at least one more season, the Detroit News reports.

The Red Wings are expected to announce on Tuesday that Lidstrom has been signed to a one-year deal worth approximately $6 million.

That contract would be for about $1.5 million less than Lidstrom had been earning, giving the Red Wings cap space to re-sign some of their pending free agents. Tomas Holmstrom and Todd Bertuzzi are both unrestricted free agents while Patrick Eaves, Drew Miller, Justin Abdelkader, Darren Helm and Derek Meech are restricted free agents.
