July 18: Red Wings sign Bowman for two years

Plus: Detroit promotes Holland to general manager; Blackhawks name Toews captain

by John Kreiser @jkreiser7713 / Managing Editor


1997: Two months after winning the Stanley Cup for the first time in 42 years, the Detroit Red Wings make two moves that will help them win three more in the next 11: They sign Scotty Bowman to a two-year contract to remain as coach and promote Ken Holland to general manager. He had been assistant GM.

Bowman guides the Red Wings to the Cup again in 1998 and wins his NHL-record ninth championship as a coach in 2002. After the final buzzer, he puts on his skates and takes the Cup for a lap around the ice. It's his last act before retiring as the holder of NHL records for wins and championships by a coach.

Detroit forward Andreas Athanasiou may not be a mythical Greek god, but with his blinding speed it's not too far of a stretch to believe he indeed has wings on his skates.
