Zetterberg signed for 10 years / $7m per
DETROIT - A report says the Detroit Red Wings have agreed to a contract extension with left-wing Henrik Zetterberg that could pay him more than $7 million a year for 10 years.

A story on The Ann Arbor News's website says the team plans a news conference Wednesday afternoon in Detroit. The story says owners Mike and Marian Ilitch, general manager Ken Holland, coach Mike Babcck and vice president Steve Yzerman will attend.

The 28-year-old native of Sweden is in his sixth NHL season, all with Detroit. He has 43 points in 45 games this season.

A message seeking comment was left late Tuesday for team spokesman John Hahn.

Zetterberg agent Gunnar Svensson tells the Swedish paper Aftonbladet his client might sign a 10-year deal worth about $71 million.

HF Boards saying it's for 12 years - that's a 6 mil per year cap hit - Another team getting smart about the cap and giving a super long contract. With the coming hyper-inflation, it's win win for the team.

unless he develops injuries `a la DiPietro......unlike the Islanders I think the wings will come out ahead on this. somehow they always do.....
