Former Black Bear Gustav Nyquist has signed a contract extension with the Detroit Red Wings.
The center has a new two-year deal, reportedly worth 1-point-9 million dollars.
Nyqust, who turns 24 next month, appeared in 22 regular season games last year, tallying three goals and three assists.
During the Red Wings' playoff run, he then had two goals and three assists in 14 games. Nyquist will continue to play alongside another former UMaine star, Jimmy Howard -- Detroit's goalie -- who was given a 6-year extension in April.
