Attending the ceremony will be Red Wings legends Gordie Howe, Ted Lindsay, Alex Delvecchio, Steve Yzerman and members of the Abel and Sawchuck families.
The City Theatre in Detroit will host a party next month in honor of Detroit Red Wings great Nicklas Lidstrom’s jersey retirement ceremony.
The Detroit Red Wings do not play another home game until March 6 against the Avalanche.
It might be a few days after Christmas but this is the perfect gift for all Red Wings fans.
Former Red Wings star Nicklas Lidstrom is among the players expected on the ice for an alumni game between Detroit and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
“Lidstrom’s durability over his 20-year career is nearly as impressive as his litany of accomplishments,” the Wings said in a press release.
Nicklas Lidstrom, Red Wings – Lidstrom is one of the greatest defensemen to ever play in the NHL, and his career lasted two decades before his retirement in 2012.
Former Red Wing and future Hall of Famer Nick Lidstrom was at Sports Fest over the weekend and stopped to update all about retirement, his thoughts about the current team and if he is the best defenseman ever to play the game.
How is the man dubbed ‘The Perfect Human’ doing in retirement? Is it all about the La-Z-Boy and remote control?
I have no problem with Youkilis thinking it and even saying it and Yankee fans should not care either.
