Howard and Ericsson Signed

There are reports that both Jimmy Howard and Jonathan Ericsson have re-signed with the Red Wings. The team hasn’t made an announcement but Malik pointed out a couple signs that it could be true.

The big evidence is the NHLPA’s website listing compensation for both players for next season.

For those who didn’t follow that link, this leaves Chris Chelios, Aaron Downey, Valtteri Filppula, Mark Hartigan, Logan Koopmans, Darren McCarty and Kyle Quincey unsigned. Chelios supposedly has a deal and Filppula will, either through negotiations or arbitration. Hartigan and Koopmans are likely on their way out. Downey and McCarty have been offered two-way deals. I haven’t heard anything about Quincey all summer.
