Franzen inks three-year deal
DETROIT -- Red Wings forward Johan Franzen signed a three-year contract Friday after a rookie season in which he scored 12 goals.

The 26-year-old Swede would have been an unrestricted free agent after the 2007-08 season. He made his NHL debut in 2005-06 and led Detroit rookies in games (80), points (16) and goals.

"Johan had a very good rookie season in the NHL," general manager Ken Holland said. "He was a big part of our penalty killing, provided us with a physical presence and played very well in the playoffs.

"Moving into his second NHL season and beyond, were hopeful he can gain some confidence and increase his contribution in the scoring department as well."

Detroit selected Franzen with its first pick (third round, 97th overall) in the 2004 draft.
