As part of the NHL Centennial Celebration, renowned Canadian artist Tony Harris will paint original portraits of each of the 100 Greatest NHL Players presented by Molson Canadian, as chosen by a Blue Ribbon panel. NHL.com will reveal two portraits each Monday in 2017.

This week, the portraits of Red Kelly, who played defenseman and center during his 20-season NHL career, and forward Alex Delvecchio are being unveiled in the fifth installment.

Red Kelly won the Stanley Cup four times with the Detroit Red Wings and four times with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Alex Delvecchio, who played on a line with Gordie Howe for the Red Wings, scored 1,281 points (456 goals, 825 assists) in 1,549 NHL games, all for Detroit.
