In a sold out arena Friday night the Detroit Red Wings retired 91 year old Red Kelly’s number 4 jersey. Scotty Bowman spoke to the packed house and rattled off some incredible statistics for Kelly such as winning four Stanley Cups, 162 goals, and 310 assists as a Red Wing player.
Watch the video below as they raise the now legendary jersey to the roof top of the Little Caesars Arena.
The Red Wings pulled of a win in a 3-2 overtime games vs. the Maple Leafs. Did Kelly’s celebration drive some inspiration to the players? We don’t know, but they played great and it was a fantastic night of entertainment.
