The Detroit Red Wings signed defenseman Jonathan Ericsson to a $25.5 million, six-year contract Wednesday to keep him off the market in July.

Detroit drafted Ericsson with the last pick in the 2002 NHL draft, 291st overall.

The 29-year-old Ericsson had 13 points — two shy of his career high — in 45 games last season during the lockout-shortened slate.

Lupul out 2 weeks

Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul will be out for about two weeks.

Lupul has a grade-two groin strain. He was injured during Monday's 6-0 loss to the Blue Jackets.
