Red Wings agree to deals with Ericsson, Eaves @NHLdotcom

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Red Wings have agreed to terms with defenseman Jonathan Ericsson and right wing Patrick Eaves on three-year contracts.

The team confirmed the deals Friday but did not release financial details.

Ericsson has played four seasons in the NHL, all with Detroit. He set career highs in 2010-11 in games (74), points (15) and penalty minutes (87).

The 27-year-old Eaves is coming off a season in which he had 13 goals and seven assists in 63 games for the Red Wings.

Detroit lost in the second round of the playoffs to San Jose, but got good news recently when Nicklas Lidstrom decided to return.
