Petr Mrazek's new contract will probably play a key role in sorting out Detroit's goaltending situation this summer.

The Red Wings expect to re-sign Mrazek, who is a restricted free agent, and trade Jimmy Howard. GM Ken Holland acknowledged after the season that moving Howard "might be good for the organization" because the team doesn't want around $10 million committed to goaltending.

Detroit goalie coach Jeff Salajko believes that Jared Coreau has a future at the NHL level.

The 6-foot-4, 236-pound netminder posted a 29-15-2 record with a 2.43 goals-against average and .922 save percentage with Grand Rapids of the AHL in 2015-16. Coreau is expected to play another year in the minors, as the Wings intend to sign the pending restricted free agent this summer.

Russia has added Alexey Marchenko to their World Cup roster.

He suited up in 66 games with Detroit during the regular season and chipped in 11 points. Marchenko concluded the playoffs on the sidelines with an upper-body injury, but he should be OK in time to play in the tournament.

Gustav Nyquist didn't get a spot on Sweden for the World Cup.

Nyquist just led the Swedes with seven goals at the World Championship tournament, but it wasn't enough to get him a roster position. Henrik Zetterberg and Niklas Kronwall were placed on Sweden in March when the preliminary rosters were announced.

Other Friday roster additions were Tomas Tatar (Team Europe) and Dylan Larkin (Team North America).

Tomas Nosek has signed a two-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings.

He is slated to earn $575,000 at the NHL level and $175,000 in the AHL in 2016-17 and then $650,000 in 2017-18. Nosek had 15 goals and 15 assists in 70 AHL games with Grand Rapids this season. He also made six appearances with Detroit, but didn't find the scoresheet.

Detroit has acquired Dylan Sadowy from San Jose in exchange for a 2017 third-round draft pick.

The Sharks have been unable to sign the winger, who they selected in the third round (81st overall) of the 2014 NHL Draft. He generated 45 goals and 70 points in 64 games with Saginaw and Barrie in the OHL during the 2015-16 season.

Gustav Nyquist has taken an interest in horse racing lately as the Kentucky Derby winner was named Nyquist, after the Red Wings forward.

Nyquist, the horse, then placed third in the Preakness Stakes. "It’s cool. It’s different," Nyquist said. "I watched the race and like, calling a horse instead of my name on the ice, that was definitely different, for sure. It was an honor and a lot of fun to follow for sure." Nyquist, the player, was planning to go to Belmont Park to see the horse race, but now it appears Nyquist, the horse, won't be racing there, so the Red Wings forward hopes to see him another time. Meanwhile, Nyquist had a great showing in the World Championship to put a more positive ending on what had been a bit of a disappointing season.

Pavel Datsyuk has received an offer from the KHL's SKA St. Petersburg.

Datsyuk's agent said that his client won't make a decision about his future until he meets with the Detroit Red Wings in June. It makes sense for SKA St. Petersburg to pursue Datsyuk in the hopes that he'll sign with them and with that in mind, the fact that he has an offer on the table isn't surprising. His contract with Detroit runs through the 2016-17 campaign, but he hasn't committed to staying in North America.
May 25 - 5:14 PM

The Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association named Dylan Larkin as the Red Wings' rookie of the year.

Larkin didn't have much competition for that distinction, but he had a great rookie campaign regardless. The 19-year-old forward finished with 23 goals and 45 points in 80 contests. "It was an exciting year for me personally, being able to wear the winged wheel and skate alongside great players who I grew up watching," said Larkin. "Playing for the Red Wings was a dream come true, and I’m looking forward to working hard this summer to get better for next season."

We should know more about Pavel Datsyuk's status between June 6-16, according to his agent.

Datsyuk will reportedly meet with Detroit GM Ken Holland early to mid-June. "He would like to leave, but at the same time, he wants to make sure the Wings have options," said Datsyuk's agent, Dan Milstein. "He wants to help the team any way he can with the salary cap issue." The only thing that can solve that is if he gets traded to another club willing to absorb his $7.5 million cap hit.

Pavel Datsyuk says he hasn't made a decision on his future with the Detroit Red Wings.

After the Red Wings were eliminated in the playoffs, reports surfaced about Datsyuk retiring from the NHL to join a team in the KHL so that he could be closer to family. Datsyuk clearly has some game left, as he had three assists in Sunday's Bronze Medal Game against the United States. The 37-year-old had 16 goals and 49 points in 66 games this season.

Pavel Datsyuk had three assists in Russia's 7-2 win over Team USA in the Bronze Medal Game at the World Hockey Championship.

Datsyuk and his national team were dominant on Sunday. The 37-year-old picked up the primary assists on goals by Sergei Mozyakin (2-0), Ivan Telegin (3-0) and Mozyakin again (6-2). The Russians managed to save face by winning the bronze medal on home ice after being knocked out of gold medal contention by Finland in the semi-final.
May 22 - 11:47 AM

Pavel Datsyuk's agent denied a report that his client has accepted a deal with a Russian club.

The report, which originates from Sovsport.ru, states that Datsyuk has agreed to a two-year contract with St. Petersburgh SKA that will be signed after the 2016 Worlds. "I know for a fact that Pavel has not discussed a contract while playing for the national team in Russia," agent Dan Milstein said. "I spoke with him to confirm this again. For a fact we don't have a contract with anybody (Russian team) right now." Datsyuk still has a year remaining on his contract with Detroit, but he's likely to either retire or sign with a KHL squad.

Larkin is playing for Team USA, which has advanced to the semifinals. This is his second World Championship and a stark contrast from 2015 when he was limited to one assist in 10 games.
