The Detroit Red Wings have taken 2006 Norris Trophy winner Nicklas Lidstrom off the free agent market, signing him to a two-year contract.

The deal will pay him $7.6 million in each season.

Lidstrom led all defencemen in scoring in 2005-06, with a career-high 80 points, including 16 goals.

Lidstrom also won three consecutive Norris Trophies from 2001 to 2003, becoming the first defenseman since Bobby Orr to win three straight.

In the 2002 Stanley Cup playoffs, Lidstrom was named the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as most valuable player in Detroit's Cup run - the first European player to win it.

More to follow.

7.6 is alot, but Lidstrom is one of the best players in the nhl. Now they need to handle their goaltending situation with whatever room they have left.
