Lidstrom expected to retire Thursday

The Blackhawks and Red Wings have been rivals from the start and will continue to be throughout their history. But whether you're a fan of Detroit, Chicago, or any other team in the league, hockey fans understand the high level of respect for Nicklas Lidstrom.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Red Wings captain called for a press conference to take place on Thursday morning in Detroit where he's expected to announce his retirement.

Lidstrom was drafted in 1989 by Detroit in the third round and has spent 20 years in the league. Throughout his career, he's continue to build a reputation of being a classy, talented, and respectable leader and athlete across the NHL.

He's played over 1,500 games in a Red Wings uniform, recording 264 goals and 878 assists, totally 1,142 points.
