Report: Chris Osgood to retire
Detroit's Chris Osgood is ready to call an end to his 16-year career.

The Red Wings have announced general manager Ken Holland and free-agent goaltender Chris Osgood will take part in a conference call Tuesday. According to reports, the veteran Osgood will announce his retirement from playing and take a position with the club as a goalie consultant.

The Detroit Free Press had reported Monday night that Osgood was returning as the backup to Jimmy Howard, but amended that report Tuesday morning.

Detroit is still seeking a backup goalie and reports have linked them to veteran journeyman Ty Conklin, but nothing has been finalized.

The team re-signed Joey MacDonald to a two-way contract earlier this month but has yet to find a more tested goaltender to share time with Howard.

Groin injuries limited Osgood, 38, to just 11 games last season backing up Howard. Osgood went 5-3-2 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .903 save percentage. He had sports hernia surgery in January.

Osgood has spent 13 of his 16 NHL seasons with the Red Wings, with whom he's won three Stanley Cups. He is second on the team's all-time list with 319 wins and 39 shutouts, and his 2.49 GAA is fourth all-time among Red Wings goalies who have skated in at least 100 games.

Last season Osgood became the 10th goalie all-time to win 400 games. In 744 games with the Red Wings, Islanders and Blues, he has 401 wins and 50 shutouts. His 74 playoff wins are eighth all-time, and his 15 shutouts are fourth.
