Detroit Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom set a league and franchise record Sunday night.
Lidstrom played in his 1,550th game for the Red Wings, the most by any player who has spent their entire career with one franchise.
The seven-time Norris Trophy winner broke the record held by Detroit's Alex Delvecchio, who played in 1,549 games with the Red Wings.
Yet another former Red Wing, the legendary Gordie Howe, appeared in the most games in a Detroit uniform with 1,687, but he wound up his career playing with the Hartford Whalers.
The 41-year-old Lidstrom, in his 20th season with the Red Wings, has helped the team win four Stanley Cup championships.
