Forward Tomas Holmstrom announced his retirement Tuesday after 15 seasons with the Detroit Red Wings. Holmstrom confirmed Monday's reports of his departure at a news conference in Joe Louis Arena before Detroit's home opener against the Dallas Stars. He spent his entire NHL career with the Red Wings and played on four Stanley Cup championship teams. Holmstrom, who turns 40 on Wednesday, ranks sixth in franchise history in games played with 1,026. His 122 power-play goals put him third on the Red Wings' career list. The former 10th-round draft pick finished his career with 243 goals and 530 points during the regular season and 56 goals and 51 assists in the playoffs. ---Free-agent defenseman Kent Huskins signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings, the team announced. Huskins, 33, had two goals and five assists in 25 games with the St. Louis Blues last season, and appeared in one Stanley Cup Playoff game for them. A sixth-round pick by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 1998 NHL Draft, Huskins totaled 67 points in 299 NHL games with the Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks and Blues. He was a member of the Ducks' Stanley Cup championship team in 2007. ---Scott Gomez is expected to join the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday, according to a TSN report. Gomez has practiced with the team since having his contract bought out by the Montreal Canadiens last week, but hasn't yet signed a contract. He also traveled with the Sharks to Calgary for Sunday's game against the Flames. Gomez, 33, spent three years with the Canadiens, but had the final two years bought out by general manager Marc Bergevin. In 196 games with Montreal, Gomez had 21 goals and 87 assists. ---The Nashville Predators recalled forward Gabriel Bourque from their AHL affiliate. The 22-year-old has 12 points in 15 games for the Milwaukee Admirals this season. In his rookie NHL season last year he ranked ninth in points per game among first-year players who appeared in at least half their team's games.
