DETROIT (AP) — Nicklas Lidstrom has made a decision about his future.

The 42-year-old Lidstrom will announce Thursday whether he’s retiring or returning to play a 21st season with the Detroit Red Wings.

The four-time Stanley Cup champion and seven-time Norris Trophy winner put retirement on hold in each of the previous two years by signing one-year contracts and answering questions from reporters on a conference call. This time, he’s holding a news conference at Joe Louis Arena.

Lidstrom had 34 points and a plus-21 rating that ranked among the league leaders last season. He missed a career-high 11 games due to a bone bruise on his right ankle.
