One of the National Hockey League’s “Original Six,” few teams in professional hockey have enjoyed more success than the Detroit Red Wings. In this newly revised edition, Stan “the Hockey Maven” Fischler profiles over fifty of the greatest characters from this unforgettable franchise. Fans can read about everyone from the legendary Gordie Howe (who was almost killed by a body-check that fractured his skull before he went on to become known as “Mr. Hockey”) to Nicklas Lindström (who became the first European to win the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2002). With a deft pen, Fischler describes the Red Wings greatest accomplishments from his front-row seat in the press box. 

Beyond the stats and facts, this veteran sportswriter brings fans off the ice and into the locker room to share a treasure trove of stories and anecdotes from this legendary franchise. Within these pages, fans will taste the adrenaline as the Red Wings rack up 10 Stanley Cup Championships and cheer with the crowd as Pete and Jerry Cusimano toss the first “good luck” octopus onto the ice. Without a doubt, Detroit Red Wings Greatest Moments and Players is a must-have for any Red Wings fan.
