Lidstrom staying with Red Wings as scout
Nicklas Lidstrom is staying with the Detroit Red Wings as scout.

Nicklas Lidstrom has left the ice, but he's not leaving the Detroit Red Wings.

Wings assistant GM Jim Nill confirmed Sunday that Lidstrom will remain with the organization as a scout, most likely in Europe.

"We haven't really sat down [and determined] to what extent, but he'll be in the organization and do everything he can to help us out," Nill said during a session of the Red Wings' prospects camp. "We might bring him back here. It depends on the situation. His terms. We wanted to keep him in the organization."

Lidstrom retired in May after spending all 20 of his NHL seasons with Red Wings, winning four Stanley Cups and seven Norris trophies.

Quote of the Day

Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
