Veteran goalie agrees to terms with Wings
DETROIT -- Veteran goalie Ty Conklin, who played 33 games for Pittsburgh last season, has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Stanley Cup champion Red Wings.

Mainly a back-up to Penguins Marc-Andre Fluery last season, Conklin posted a respectable 18-8-5 record with two shutouts, and a 2.51 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage.

Conklin, 32, will challenge Jimmy Howard in training camp for the back-up role to Red Wings starter Chris Osgood. In 109 career regular-season games, Conklin, a native of Anchorage, Alaska, has compiled a 48-32-12 record with a 2.60 GAA and .909 save percentage.

Conklin spent parts of three seasons with the Edmonton Oilers before splitting the 2006-07 season between Buffalo and Columbus.

On Nov 26, 2003, Conklin got his only career start against the Red Wings. Then with the Oilers, Conklin surrendered five goals, including power-play goals to Steve Yzerman, Brendan Shanahan and Brett Hull, in a 7-1 loss to the Wings at Joe Louis Arena.
