02:36 PM ET 04.11 | The Detroit Red Wings and goaltender Jimmy Howard are nearing a contract extension. Aaron Ward of TSN originally reported the progressing talks and Howard confirmed later on Thursday that the deal potentially could be signed by this weekend. According to Ward, the sides are nearing a six-year contract that would carry an annual average value of $5.3 million per season. This remains consistent with a previous report that stated that the two sides were discussing a six- or seven-year deal that would carry an annual average value in the $5 million range. Howard is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Wards reporting it ?? The guys word has zero weight.

It's better to Aaron the side of caution, though.
