Gustav Nyquist might be staying in the Motor City.

The Detroit Red Wings are ready to sign the pending unrestricted free-agent forward to a contract extension if they don't receive a trade offer that meets their asking price, TSN's Pierre LeBrun reported on Tuesday's edition of "Insider Trading."

Nyquist could become an attractive commodity for teams that miss out on top-tier forward rentals Artemi Panarin, Mark Stone, or Matt Duchene. The 29-year-old has 15 goals and 48 points in 59 games this season, but would need to waive his no-trade clause before being dealt.

Nyquist headlines Detroit's list of pending UFAs which also includes veteran Thomas Vanek, right-handed blue-liner Nick Jensen, and goaltender Jimmy Howard.
