Wings could keep Hudler

According to a report on, Detroit forward Jiri Hudler could remain with the Red Wings next season and sign a new contract.

Though the 28-year-old might choose to test the open market as an unrestricted free agent on July 1, the Wings are interested in offering him an extension.

"We're prepared to offer him a contract," Wings GM Ken Holland told "He's got the right to go to free agency. We'll see what happens. Right now Jiri will continue taking time to determine what he wants to do."

Hudler could command a hefty raise on the market, after posting a career-best 25 goals and 25 assists for 50 points in 81 games this past season, but could prefer to stay in Detroit.

Meanwhile, Holland is also focusing on contract extensions with restricted free agents Kyle Quincey, Darren Helm and Justin Abdelkader, with whom he had begun preliminary talks.
