Red Wings announce Ken Holland contract extension beyond next season

Red Wings Vs Islanders Preview Betting Odds Predictions TV | NHL 4/7/2018

The Detroit Red Wings announced the signing of longtime general manager Ken Holland to a new two-year deal on Saturday.

Team owner Christopher Ilitch announced Holland received a two-year contract extension.

The Red Wings also made the playoffs in each of Holland's first 19 seasons at the helm, comprising the majority of a run of 25-straight seasons in which the team qualified for the postseason from 1990-2016 - the third-longest streak in National Hockey League history.

Holland has served as Detroit's general manager since 1997.

Terms of the extension were not immediately known. They entered their final game of the season on Saturday against the New York Islanders 27th overall in the National Hockey League with a 30-39-12 record.


The fantasy that most Detroit Red Wings fans have of former captain Steve Yzerman coming to town to once again rescue a franchise in desperate need of help just took a devastating blow. He started out in the organization as a scout and has spent 35 years with the team.

The Red Wings have won three Stanley Cups (1998, 2002, 2008) during Holland's tenure, but have also missed the playoffs in back-to-back seasons following the end of the team's 25-season playoff appearance streak.

Ken Holland isn't going anywhere.

"Around these parts, we're used to be being in the playoffs, we're used to competing for Stanley Cups, and believe me, that's where we all want to be", Ilitch said.

Holland has traded to restructure the team and holds an NHL-high 11 picks in the upcoming entry draft. He's tasked with getting Detroit back to their winning ways after not making the post-season in back-to-back years.
