Detroit Red Wings netminder Jimmy Howard wants to stay put when the 2019 NHL Trade deadline approaches, even if it means the possibility of being dealt to a contender.

Howrd, 34, has spent his entire 13-year career in Detroit, and would prefer to sign a new contract with the Red Wings rather than suit up for a new team.

“Obviously I want to stay here,” Howard said (h/t NHL.com). “This city has become home, not only for myself but for my family as well. I definitely don’t want to relocate at all. So it would mean the world to me to be able to end my career here in Detroit.”

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said he would speak to Howard and his representatives within the next month to discuss his future with the organization.

“I want to see what they’re thinking [in terms of a contract],” Holland said.

“I do feel like I have a lot of good hockey left,” Howard said. “I feel like I can keep going. Do I see the light at the end of the tunnel? Yeah. It’s definitely there. I am getting older in this League. I realize that it’s becoming a young man’s League. But at the same time I want to keep playing. I’m having the time of my life.”
