Report: Red Wings expected to re-sign Howard to 1-year deal

The Detroit Red Wings are expected to announce a one-year extension in the $4-million range for Jimmy Howard this week, reports Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press.

If Howard plays well next season, he'll earn another one-year extension after that, adds St. James. He's a pending unrestricted free agent in the final campaign of a six-year, $31.75-million pact inked with the Red Wings in 2013.

Howard, who turns 35 next week, has recorded a .907 save percentage in 47 appearances in 2018-19.

He's spent his entire career with Detroit after the Red Wings selected him 64th overall in the 2003 draft.
