Red Wings’ Jimmy Howard Wants to Retire with Team

Published

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.”

Red Wings Acquire Brendan Perlini

The Detroit Red Wings have acquired forward Brendan Perlini from the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday.

Pelini, 23, played in just one game for the Blackhawks this season and failed to earn a roster spot out of training camp. Chicago will receive Alec Pegula from the Red Wings as part of the deal, and are not obligated to retain any of Perlini’s salary.

This marks the second time that Perlini has been traded in his young career, which isn’t often a good indication. Despite a solid first two seasons of his career, where he scored 31 goals in that time, Perlini has struggled to make an impact, and stay on a roster.

The Detroit Red Wings have hired franchise icon and former Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman to take over the post as their general manager.

Current general manager, Ken Holland, will move to a position called Senior Vice President and has inked a multi-year contract extension to remain with the club, according to TSN’s Gord Miller.

Yzerman stepped down from his role as GM of the Lightning in September but he is largely responsible for building the roster that led Tampa Bay to a President’s Cup this season, matching the NHL record for wins in a single season, posting a 62-16-4 record this past season.

Yzerman could be bringing some members of the Lightning front office to Detroit with him, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie.
