Name That Old Red Wing: Episode 2

I guess Episode 1 was not hard enough - somebody got it right about an hour after I posted it. The answer: Brent Gilchrist. I had difficulty finding a decent photo of Gilchrist in a Detroit jersey.

On to the next one.

Name this old Red Wing:

He played nine seasons with the Red Wings. During those nine seasons he appeared in 30 playoff games. He was a Detroit draft pick and turned out to be a pretty decent one.

Much like last episode's Red Wing, this guy suffered an injury which ended his career a bit early.

After his NHL playing career, he hung around hockey for a long time. He coached in the OHL for many seasons before moving up to the NHL - eventually winning a Stanley Cup while in a coaching position with another club.
