Only the second player in NHL history to play more than 20 years for the same team, Alex Delvecchio (HHOF ’77) played 22 full seasons for the Detroit Red Wings. An exceptionally clean player, he collected three Lady Byng trophies and earned the nickname “Fats” because of his round face and pleasant smile. Delvecchio won three Stanley Cups (1952, 1954, 1955) and, upon his retirement, was second only to Gordie Howe in games played and most assists and points. He currently sits eighth in games played and still sits in the league’s top 25 for points and assists – even after 30 years. Delvecchio went on to coach and manage the Red Wings during the 70’s and now owns a successful engraving business.
