Veteran Tomas Holmstrom has agreed to terms on a two-year contract to remain with the Detroit Red Wings, general manager Ken Holland announced Friday.

Holmstrom's agent, Howard Gourwitz, told Booth Newspapers, "I'm very excited about it; I know Tomas is, too."

Holmstrom, 37, was due to become a restricted free agent, but now he'll return for a 14th season with Detroit, the organization he broke into the NHL with in 1996-97 and has helped win four Stanley Cup titles.

In 2009-10, Holmstrom scored 25 goals (13 on the power play) and 45 points in 68 regular-season games, reaching at least 20 goals for the fourth time in the past five seasons. In 12 playoff games he added 4 goals and 7 points.

Holmstrom has 214 goals and 469 points in 879 career games. The native of Pitea, Sweden was taken in the tenth round, No. 257, in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft.
