Report: Red Wings to sign Carlo Colaiacovo
Andy Strickland of the The Fan 590-AM in St. Louis reported Wednesday night that defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo has agreed to a two-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings.

It appears Carlo Colaiacovo will have a new home this season.

Andy Strickland of the The Fan 590-AM in St. Louis reported Wednesday night that the 29-year-old defenseman has agreed to a two-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings. The deal, according to Strickland, is worth $5 million.

Colaiacovo, who became an unrestricted free agent July 1, appeared in 259 games for the St. Louis Blues over the past four seasons after arriving via trade from the Toronto Maple Leafs.

A former first-round pick (No. 17) in 2001, Colaiacovo was dealt by Toronto to St. Louis, along with Alexander Steen, on Nov. 24, 2008, in exchange for Lee Stempniak.

Colaiacovo had two goals and 17 assists in 64 games for the Blues last season.

He has 30 goals and 109 assists in 370 NHL games. He also has three assists in 11 Stanley Cup Playoff contests.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
