Wings should find out Nicklas Lidstrom's decision next week

By Pierre LeBrun

Hold your breath, Hockeytown.

The Detroit Red Wings should find out Monday or Tuesday whether legendary defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom will be back next season.

“Nick Lidstrom and I met Tuesday for a brief meeting,” Wings GM Ken Holland told on Friday. “He said he wasn’t prepared to make decision yet. We have plans to meet in Vegas on Monday or Tuesday and he said he would give me his decision then.”

Lidstrom, 40, is nominated for a seventh Norris Trophy and will be Las Vegas for Wednesday’s NHL awards show.
