The recap as of right now…
Modano will join the Red Wings next season, likely at $1.25 million but the contract is not yet signed.
That part is expected to happen Friday. Modano returns from a golfing trip in Scotland on Thursday night and the Red Wings will have a press conference at the Joe at 2:30 PM the next day.
Malik may have misinterpreted St. James’ note about Modano’s jersey number. He says #90 is set in stone while she says it’s leaning that way. I personally like #90 better than the also-rumored #27 but prefer #91 to both, though it may never have been an option.
