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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
