Red Wings To Retire Red Kelly's No. 4

Jan 31, 2019 8:35 AM

The Detroit Red Wings will retire Red Kelly's No. 4 prior to Friday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"Amazing, isn't it?" the 91-year-old said. "I fought against having it, but it seemed to work out well in the end. Very well."

The Red Wings are the second team to ensure no one ever wears Kelly's No. 4. The Maple Leafs retired that number on Oct. 13, 2016.

"It's nice that they are doing this on a night both those teams are playing against each other," Kelly said. "All for a number I was reluctant to get."
