The Detroit Red Wings are an NHL franchise based out of Detroit, Michigan, playing in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. Detroit is one of the most historic teams in league history, as they are an Original Six member of the NHL, along with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers, Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks. The Red Wings were founded in 1926 as the Detroit Cougars and adapted their current nickname and winged-tire logo in 1932. Since 1979 the Wings have made their home at the iconic Joe Louis Arena, where they have led the NHL in attendance for many years.
With 11 Stanley Cup victories, the Detroit Red Wings are the most winning NHL franchise located in the United States. The team has taken home 19 division championships on top of their double-digit Cup wins, and has been home to some of the greatest players to ever take the ice. NHL legends from Gordie “Mr. Hockey” Howe to captain Steve Yzerman have all cemented their legacies on the ice in Hockeytown, USA. The Wings took home two Stanley Cup victories in the 2000's, including wins in 2002 and 2008 behind stars like Brett Hull and Nicklas Lidstrom. Detroit holds the longest playoff appearance streak in all of North American professional sports, appearing in the NHL postseason in each of the past 23 seasons.
