Red Wings to retire Lidstrom's No. 5 in pregame ceremony next season

DETROIT — Former Detroit Red Wings star Nicklas Lidstrom will have his No. 5 retired in a ceremony next season.

The Red Wings announced today that Lidstrom will be honored before a March 6 game against the Colorado Avalanche. Lidstrom retired last year after a career in which he won four Stanley Cups with Detroit.

Lidstrom was a seven-time winner of the Norris Trophy, which goes to the league’s best defenseman.

He was named captain of the Red Wings before the 2006-07 season, and when Detroit beat Pittsburgh in the 2008 finals, he became the first European-born captain to lead his team to a Stanley Cup.
