TV analyst Redmond to have surgery to remove tumor
Mickey Redmond
DETROIT -- Mickey Redmond, the Red Wings' popular television analyst, will undergo surgery on Monday, Feb. 11, to have a small tumor on his lung removed.

The tumor was found during a recent routine examination, which Redmond undergoes periodically following his successful surgery for lung cancer in January 2003.

The physicians treating Redmond report that the tumor was discovered early and they anticipate that he will fully recover from the surgery. He will return to the broadcast booth for the Red Wings’ game against St. Louis on March 5.

Redmond, 60, played six seasons with the Red Wings from 1971-76. Prior to Detroit, he played four seasons with Montreal, where he was a part of two Stanley Cup championships.

He was dealt to Detroit along with center Guy Charron and right wing Bill Collins in a trade that sent left wing Frank Mahovlich to the Canadiens.
Redmond, a right wing, was the first 50-goal scorer in Red Wings' history, scoring 52 in 1972-73 and 51 the following campaign.

Redmond finished his 10-season NHL career with 233 goals and 195 assists in 538 games.
