Nicklas Lidstrom

Nicklas Lidström is a Swedish former professional ice hockey defenceman who played 20 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Detroit Red Wings, which he captained for the final six seasons of his career. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest defencemen in NHL history. Over his 20 NHL seasons, Lidström won four Stanley Cup championships, seven James Norris Memorial Trophies, one Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP, and was voted into 12 NHL All-Star Games. The Red Wings never missed the postseason during his career, the longest in league history for a player never missing the playoffs. Lidström was the first European-born-and-trained captain of a Stanley Cup winning team, as well as the first European player named playoff MVP. Lidström is also the all-time leader in games played with a single NHL team by a European-born player. Lidström was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on 9 November 2015.
