8 years x $8.7 million AAV, sources told ESPN.
A pending unrestricted free agent, Larkin had a full no-trade clause and controlled his fate in season.
The Detroit captain is having a phenomenal contract year with 57 points (22 goals, 35 assists) in 59 games. The two sides have been talking throughout the season, but didn't come to an agreement until this week with Detroit in the playoff picture.
Larkin has said this season he'd like to be a life-long Red Wing, and the Michigan resident may have gotten his wish with this deal that has him signed in Detroit until he's 34.
