Moving forward. This next old Red Wing had a high impact in a short amount of time with Detroit in the early 1990s. He did not get to enjoy the glory of the ladder half of the decade, but he was instrumental in helping the Wings regain and sustain a competitive edge. His name is often overlooked and sometimes confused.
Moreover, he was the first Red Wing to win a certain very prestigious award from the NHL. Anything more would be giving it away.
