History Of The Detroit Red Wings
The Detroit Red Wings are without a doubt the most successful NHL franchise in the history of the league. The team got its start in 1926 when the NHL first awarded a team to a group of investors in that Michigan city. They acquired the entire defending Stanley Cup Champions Victoria Cougars of the WHL and played their first game in Windsor, Ontario as the Detroit Cougars. The team ended their first season in last place in their division.
The early years were tough on the team and changes continued to be made with hopes of turning fortunes around. The team also changed its name to the Detroit Falcons in 1930 and it wasn’t until millionaire James Norris bought the team in 1932 that things started happening. He changed the logo in tribute of the ‘Motor City’ and the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association and renamed the team the Red Wings.
With financial resources, the team was now able to afford key players and started a rebuilding program that turned the team into the historic icon it is now recognized as.
The team colors are red and white and the team is part of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference.
There have been many hockey legends to come from the Detroit Red Wings roster including Gordie Howe who has been known for years as ‘Mr. Hockey’ (1946-1971), Alex Delvecchio (1962-1973), Steve Yzerman (1986-2006), Nicklas Lidstrom (2006-2012) and Terry Sawchuk (1950-1964).
The team has won 11 Stanley Cups (1935-1936, 1936-1937, 1942-1943, 1949-1950, 1951-1952, 1953-1954, 1954-1955, 1996-1997, 1997-1998, 2001-2002, 2007-2008), 6 Conference Championships, 6 Presidents’ Trophies, 19 Division Championships and won the second Winter Classic in 2009 with a 6-4 victory over Chicago Blackhawks. The Red Wings also appeared in the 6th Winter Classic in 2014 but lost 3-2 to Toronto Maple Leafs in a shootout.
