The National Hockey League’s Detroit Red Wings are a team in the Central Division of the Western Conference, based in Detroit, Michigan and playing home games at Joe Louis Arena. The team was founded in 1926, and dominates the league as one of the most winning franchises, capturing 11 Stanley Cups in their history. The Red Wings have gone to the playoffs for the last 26 of 28 seasons.

Over the years some of the team’s exceptional players have included right winger Gordie Howe who made his debut in 1946, retiring in 1971, dominating the league throughout his career, center Alex Delvecchio spent 24 years as member of the Detroit team, from 1950 through 1974, goaltender Terry Sawchuk won the Calder Trophy in 1951 and helped the team win three Stanley Cups, center Sid Abel was another key player spending 14 seasons in Detroit. Following their Stanley Cup win in 1954-1955, four decades passed before they won again. The 1996-1997 team was coached by Scotty Bowman and led by Steve Yzerman who played for Detroit from 1983 through 2006, and MVP goaltender Mike Vernon. The Red Wings most recent Cup victory came in 2007-2008 with Mike Babcock coaching. They were led by captain and defenseman Niklas Lidstrom, goaltender Chris Osgood and right winger Mikael Samuelsson.
