Nyquist close to signing with Detroit
Gustav Nyquist and the Detroit Red Wings are close to agreeing on a new deal, according to Ansar Kahn of MLive.
On Tuesday, Red Wings GM Ken Holland said progress is being made: "We've done a lot of talking in the last couple of weeks. I anticipate getting it done. We're close on a one-year, talking two years."
The 23-year old forward is a restricted free agent, coming off a two-year deal that saw him earn an average of $875,000. Nyquist played 58 games for the Grand Rapids Griffins in 2012-13, scoring 23 goals and 37 assists.
In 22 games in Detroit, he scored three goals and three assists, and added five points in 14 playoff games.
