The Detroit Red Wings will host a press conference on Thursday, at which one of the greatest defenseman to ever play the game will reportedly retire.
Nicklas Lidstrom will hang up his skates after 1,564 regular season games with the Detroit Red Wings. He was as classy as any player to ever play, and represented the game as well as anyone. The game is losing one of the greats.
Lidstrom earned the respect of fans all over the NHL, especially in Chicago. As a Blackhawks fan, I salute him on an incredible career.
