Red Wings lock up Lidstrom for two
DETROIT - Four-time Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom signed a two-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings on Friday.

Financial terms weren't disclosed.

"Nick has been the best defenseman in the game for several years," general manager Ken Holland said Friday. "He's a big part of our franchise not only because (of) his elite level of play and the number of minutes he logs, but also for his professionalism, experience and leadership."

Lidstrom led all NHL defensemen last season with a career-high 80 points. He has spent his entire 14-year career with Detroit. Only Hall of Famers Bobby Orr (eight), Doug Harvey (seven) and Ray Bourque (five) have won the Norris more times than the 36-year-old Swede.
