The Detroit Red Wings will look to free agency for help between the pipes.

"Obviously, we want to sign a goalie," general manager Ken Holland said from the NHL draft in Dallas, according to Stephen Whyno of The Associated Press. "We're going to talk to some goalies this week. I don't know if I'll really be trading for one, but we're going to talk to some free agents."

While unrestricted free agents can't officially sign until July 1, teams can gauge their interest beginning Monday.

Should the Red Wings go the free-agent route, their options could include Kari Lehtonen, Jaroslav Halak, Robin Lehner, and Cam Ward.

Red Wings netminder Jimmy Howard is under contract for one more season, carrying a $5.29-million cap hit, according to CapFriendly.
