Luke Glendening is going to be playing at home for a lot longer.

The Red Wings have signed the Grand Rapids native to a four-year extension with an annual $1.8 million salary cap hit.

The deal will kick in beginning in the 2017-18 season.

Glendening, 27, was due to become a free agent after the upcoming season. The forward tallied eight goals and 13 assists last year.

“If you'd have told me two or three years ago that I'd be sitting here talking abut a four-year extension, I probably would have laughed,” Glendening told the Free Press.

In three seasons with the Red Wings, the University of Michigan product has totaled 21 goals and 25 assists in 219 games.
