MLIVE.COM: Ansar Khan reports the Detroit Red Wings have signed former St. Louis Blues goaltender Ty Conklin to a one-year deal worth just under $1 million. Khan claims the deal could be announced today.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Conklin, a former Red Wing, has been linked to his former club for weeks, so it wouldn’t be surprising if he does return to replace the recently-retired Chris Osgood.
