Red Wings

Although San Diego isn't big into Hockey (duh), I am still a Wings fan!! Yay for Osgood!!

Red Wings sign goaltender Chris Osgood to 3-year contract

DETROIT (AP) -Red Wings goalie Chris Osgood, off to a fast start this season, has signed a three-year extension with the team.

The 35-year-old Osgood leads the NHL in both goals-against average (1.68) and save percentage (.932), and has a 19-2-1 record in 22 appearances. Both losses were 3-2 decisions. No other NHL goaltender with at least 10 appearances has only two regulation losses.

Detroit originally drafted Osgood in the third round (54th overall) of the 1991 NHL draft. The New York Islanders claimed him in the waiver draft in September 2001 and traded him to St. Louis in 2003.

Osgood returned to Detroit in August 2005 when the Wings signed him as a free agent.
