Id like to try and add another forward, a right shot, but not necessarily, Yzerman said. Even potentially two forwards, depending on whos available and what the cost of these players are.

The cap is expected to stay flat next year as well and any deal has to fit for beyond this season.

Its got to make sense, Yzerman said. The contract has to make sense. Were not opposed to anything. I think its a fair assumption that well be relatively conservative.

Ultimately, were all trying to improve our teams and were all at different stages, so everybodys generally motivated to do things. Im hopeful that theres an opportunity for us that we can add players that fit what were trying to do.

Contract extensions

The Red Wings signed forwards Adam Erne and Taro Hirose to one-year contract extensions on Thursday. Terms were not released.

The 25-year-old Earn, who was acquired from Tampa Bay, appeared in 56 games for the Red Wings in 2019-20 and had two goals and five points before an injury ended his season.

The 24-year-old Hirose was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2019. He got into 26 games with the club last season and had two goals and seven points.

Seider moving

Defenceman Moritz Seider, who was the clubs first-round pick in 2019, has been assigned to Rogle BK in the Swedish Elite League after originally being assigned to play in Germany with Mannheim.

With uncertainty over an AHL season in 2020-21, the Red Wings want the 19-year-old Seider to play and develop.

Germany has delayed the start of its hockey season due to the COVID-19 pandemic while the hockey season in Sweden is already underway.
