Lidstrom was honoured Thursday night before Detroit hosted the Colorado Avalanche. A red banner — with his last name and number in white — was raised to the rafters to end the pregame ceremony.
Lidstrom retired after the 2011-12 season — his 20th with the Red Wings. He won four Stanley Cups and seven Norris Trophies as the NHL's best defenceman.
The Swede played in 1,564 games — the most by someone who was on only one NHL team — and could still be making millions in the league.
