Red Wings Schedule Friday News Conference To Introduce Mike Modano

From Helene St. James of the Free Press:

Mike Modano is scheduled to be introduced by the Detroit Red Wings as their newest acquisition in a news conference at 2:30 p.m. Friday at Joe Louis Arena.

He and the Wings have agreed to a one-year deal, believed to be worth around $1.25 million. He’s being brought in to center the third line, between wingers Jiri Hudler and Dan Cleary.

With Modano joining the team and Mike Babcock saying earlier this summer that Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk will play on the same line, the Red Wings' forward lines are shaping up to look like this:

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Franzen-Filppula--Bertuzzi
Hudler-Modano-Cleary
Abdelkader-Helm-Miller/Eaves/Draper

To say the least, I'm pretty pumped for the season based on the way the roster looks right now.
