Ericsson will make more than Kronwall next season

DETROIT — The new three-year deal worth $9.75 million Jonathan Ericsson signed to remain a Red Wing makes him their third highest paid defenseman.

The deal, which averages out to $3.25 million a season, puts Ericsson ahead of Niklas Kronwall on the pay scale.

Kronwall is in the final year of a deal that will pay him $3 million this year.

The Wings will likely start talking an extension with Kronwall soon to correct this.

Nicklas Lidstrom ($6.2 million) and Brad Stuart ($3.75 million) are No. 1 and No. 2 on the scale.

Ericsson was picked by Detroit with the the final selection of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
