The Detroit Free-Press reported that the contract is worth $25.5 million, with a $4.25 million salary cap hit each season.
This season, an upper-body injury has limited Ericcson, 29, to 15 games. He has one goal and four assists and is in the final season of a three-year, $9.75 million contract signed in 2011. He has spent his entire seven-year career with the Red Wings.
Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Paul Martin will miss four to six weeks with a fractured tibia, coach Dan Bylsma said.

Martin is a candidate for the U.S. Olympic team, but the injury is not expected to jeopardize his chances to make the roster, which should be announced in January.
