By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2010-11 season. Each week during the off-season, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on forward Tomas Holmstrom.
Point plateau Holmstrom hit when he assisted on Valtteri Filppula’s goal against Pittsburgh in a 5-4 overtime loss March 21.
Games missed due to a broken hand that he suffered in a 3-2 loss to division rival Columbus January 14. Holmstrom would return against Nashville Feb. 9.
Holmstrom’s 62 penalty minutes tied (2002-03) for third highest in his 14 year career and third highest on the team behind Todd Bertuzzi and Jonathan Ericsson.
