The Detroit Red Wings called a press conference for tomorrow morning with Nicklas Lidstrom and general manager Ken Holland, fueling speculation that the legendary defenseman will end his 20-year NHL career.
Lidstrom, 42, lives in Novi with his family during the hockey season, and has pondered retirement since the Wings were bounced in the first round of this year's NHL playoffs.
If it's true, he leaves the game with four Stanley Cups, seven Norris trophies — signifying the best defensive player in the NHL annually, an Olympic gold medal, and a reputation as the best defensive player of his generation.
So, Wings fans, as you come to grips with the likely end of an era in Hockeytown, take a minute to reflect on a remarkable career and tell us what your favorite Nick Lidstrom highlight is.
