On March 6th, 2014 the Detroit Red Wings will be raising a banner in to the rafters of Joe Louis Arena to commemorate the retirement of Nick Lidstrom’s jersey number. The Red Wings will be wearing a special patch for this game on their regular season jerseys which will then be removed afterward so the jerseys can be used for the rest of the year.
However, jersey collectors can still celebrate this special day because the Red Wings will be wearing special pre-game warm up jerseys. These special Lidstrom Jersey Retirement Night Warm-up jerseys will be auctioned off at a later date. We have heard that the foundation will be auctioning these jerseys off through auctions.nhl.com.
We will follow up on this story once these jerseys become available for bid.
