While not unexpected at all the day finally arrived for long-time Detroit Red Wing (and "Grind Liner") Kirk Maltby on Tuesday. "Malts" is the quintessential Red Wing...a role player, a grinder, a hard worker and a player with a lot of heart. He will be sorely missed as the game moves on.
Yahoo Sports has a nice write-up on Maltby's retirement and career.
Thanks Malts for all the great memories!
