The Detroit Red Wings and captain Nicklas Lidstrom have called a press conference for tomorrow at 11 a.m. according to the Detroit Free Press. It’s believed that Lidstrom will announce his retirement after 20 seasons in the NHL.

The 42-year old, who has won four Stanley Cups and is seven time Norris trophy winner for the league’s best defensemen, is believed to want to return to Sweden where his oldest son is living and playing hockey.

Lidstrom has been the Wings captain since 2006 when Steve Yzerman retired. Henrik Zetterberg is expected to become the new captain.
