Thursday morning, Lidstrom, who played in 1,827 games, including the playoffs, made the announcement, which stakeholders in Hockeytown knew would eventually come, but were hoping it wouldn’t be so soon.
The most decorated defenseman of his era, Lidstrom, who appeared in 12 All-Star games and won his first Norris Trophy at age 31, has decided to retire instead of returning to the Wings for a 21st season. (NHL)

Nicklas Lidstrom has had a setback in his recovery from a deep ankle bruise.
The Red Wings’ captain skated for a very brief time Wednesday morning at Honda Center, but returned to the dressing room without working up a sweat.
“It is discouraging and it’s disappointing too that you’re feeling better and it’s getting up to over two weeks now,” said Lidstrom, who was injured Feb. 25. “So it’s frustrating when you want to be out there playing and you can’t.”
Lidstrom will sit out his eighth straight game when the Wings play the Ducks Wednesday night. It is the 43rd game of his career – regular-season and playoffs – that the legendary defenseman will miss in his 20 NHL seasons. (NHL.com)
