Prior to Steve Yzerman’s Red Wings lifting the Stanley Cup in 1997, the last Hockeytown team to call itself Cup champions was the 1954-55 squad, led by Gordie Howe, Ted Lindsay, Alex Delvecchio and Terry Sawchuk.
Since this is the 60th anniversary of that Cup victory, every Monday, TWW will feature a player from that team. To keep it simple, the players will be presented in alphabetical order.
