Lidstrom to return to Red Wings for 20th season

Nicklas Lidstrom will return to play for the Detroit Red Wings. The team announced the decision today before a scheduled conference call with Lidstrom and general manager Ken Holland. The 41-year-old Swede, who will return for a 20th season, had considered retiring. Lidstrom is a Norris Trophy finalist for the 11th time in 13 seasons. If he wins the award for being the NHL's top defenseman - it would be his seventh - he will match Doug Harvey's total and trail Bobby Orr's record by only one.
