Howard signs six-year contract

The Detroit Red Wings have signed goaltender Jimmy Howard to a six-year, $31.8 million contract extension.

Howard and the Wings had agreed on the length of the deal last week, but were ironing out the rest of the details over the last six days.

Howard, 29, has posted a 17-12-6 record in 36 games so far this season with the Wings, along with a 2.31 goals-against-average and a .920 save percentage.

The All-Star and former Vezina candidate was originally drafted by the Wings in the second-round (64th overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

Howard will earn an average of $5.3 million, per season, on his new deal.
