Red Wings sign Glendening to three-year extension
The Detroit Red Wings have signed forward Luke Glendening to a three-year contract extension.

The Detroit Red Wings have signed forward Luke Glendening to a three-year contract extension. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Glendening has been a valuable member of the Red Wings' checking line this season, contributing six assists in 51 games in his first NHL season.

"Glendening definitely earned himself a contract," coach Mike Babcock said. "Now he's set up to be a Red Wing."

The 24-year-old native of Grand Rapids, Mich., played four seasons at the University of Michigan before signing as an undrafted free agent with the Boston Bruins. He played in three games for their American Hockey League affiliate in Providence at the end of the 2011-12 season and in 51 games for the Grand Rapids Griffins last season, scoring eight goals and 26 points.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
