Let’s start with the obvious for the Detroit Red Wings: there’s a lot to be desired after their pitiful 10-1 loss over the weekend to the average-at-best Montreal Canadiens. Just about every facet of the team failed during that Saturday night matchup. The flip side of the loss is that there’s only one way to

On this date, December 4, 1968, Gordie Howe scored his 700th goal. Becoming the 1st member of this very exclusive club.  In honour of this achievement, we are re-running this tremendous tribute that former THW contributor Ross Bonander wrote and was originally published just after Mr. Howe passed away on June 10, 2016.

Every year, Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland uses the American Thanksgiving holiday to evaluate where his team stands and how to approach the remaining 75% of the schedule.

It’s amazing how fast the season goes. The Detroit Red Wings have already completed the first quarter of their schedule, posting a 10-8-3 record in the process. Currently slotted in third with 23 points, they sit nine points back of the Atlantic Division-leading Tampa Bay Lightning, who have won 15 of their first 20 contests.

My first memory of Chris Osgood is when he played for the old AHL Adirondack Red Wings. Between the Albany fans and Adirondack fans who made the trip down the Northway from Glens Falls in bunches, it was hard not to hear chants raining down his name. One didn’t need a program with stats either

As of Thursday afternoon, the Vegas Golden Knights are one of four undefeated teams in the National Hockey League. I know, it doesn’t seem real to me either. Maybe the league should hold an expansion draft every year. The Golden Knights keep finding ways to win. They’re three for three in franchise history, and with

Early reviews are in on the 2017-18 Detroit Red Wings: They’re hungry and out to prove last season was a fluke. Detroit opened up Little Caesars Arena with a gutsy 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild after blowing a 2-0 lead. Henrik Zetterberg capitalized on a loose puck to put the Red Wings up for

“Too small.” That brief statement has probably been attached to Detroit Red Wings defenseman Joe Hicketts more times than one. It’s why the 5-foot-8, 174-pound blue liner was passed over in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. It’s also why the then-18-year-old had to earn his place within an NHL organization doing what few his size

It may be far-fetched to think that the Detroit Red Wings could qualify for the 2018 NHL Playoffs, but if you ask anyone on the team, it’s their goal. Queue the Jim Mora sound-byte. Regardless of what may or may not be best for the organization, the Red Wings want to win. It’s the inherent

One of the greatest players that hockey has ever seen, Jaromir Jagr, is presently 45 years old. There is a great deal of speculation—possibly too much—about where he will be playing for his 28th professional season. Certainly, there have been aged talents like Jagr before. “Mr. Hockey,” Gordie Howe, played his final NHL season at the
