The deal was signed on Tuesday morning, and the news came straight from the magician himself via Twitter.
The Detroit Red Wings and Pavel Datsyuk have agreed to to three-year contract extention, keeping him with the winged wheels for another four seasons, through 2017. Datsyuk was to be entering the final year of his contract.
