Red Wings History

A lot of names that you would see while touring the Hockey Hall of Fame had big moments on Jan. 8. A pair of all-time greats made their National Hockey League debuts, some impressive streaks were extended and the year 2000 gave us quite the evening on this date. Let’s fire our daily hockey time machine and take a trip back. Big Bird’s Big Day Hall of Fame defenseman Larry Robinson played in 1,384 games during his 20-season NHL career. He suited up for the first time, on Jan. 8. 1973, in the Montreal Canadiens 3-3 tie with the Minnesota North Stars. As is the case with many young players, Robinson was slotted into the lineup due to injures and stayed there for the next 17 seasons before moving on to the Los Angeles Kings. Exactly 13 years later, on Jan. 8, 1986, Robinson picked up three assists in the Habs’ 5-3 victory over the rival Boston Bruins. Now with the Kings, on Jan. 7, 1991, Robinson became the 13th player in...

In the midst of training camp, the Detroit Red Wings are gearing up for two things: the 2020-21 NHL season and hot take season. This is the latter. Here are five bold predictions for the 2020-21 season – one that should see the Red Wings begin ascending out of the NHL’s basement. Filip Hronek: Goal-Scoring Machine Prediction: Filip Hronek outscores the next five highest-scoring defensemen on Detroit’s roster combined. Last season, Hronek scored nine goals in 65 games for the Red Wings. Madison Bowey, Mike Green, Patrik Nemeth, Dennis Cholowski, and Trevor Daley combined to score nine goals in that span. Pencil in 10-plus goals for Filip Hronek this season. (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) This year, Hronek is going to outscore his blue line teammates, even with more talented players now on the roster. The 23-year-old defenseman registered 10 goals in 22 Czech games before joining the Red Wings for training camp. He’s essentially in midseason form and...

Red Wings Management

From the moment Steve Yzerman was officially announced as the new general manager of the Detroit Red Wings, fans were delighted. Sitting in front of the Detroit sport's media on April 19, 2019, he answered loaded question after loaded question, but he continuously returned to his philosophical viewpoint of patience. He admitted what Ken Holland wished to ignore for years, although there were rumors that Holland was under extreme pressure from the Illitch family to keep the 25-year playoff streak alive.

He told the fans and the media the Red Wings organization requires a full-on rebuild while also stating the rebuild will not be quick or painless. He (Yzerman) told Detroit's people to be...
