Red Wings Mailbox - Lidstrom

You submitted the questions at detroitredwings.com, and now Captain Nicklas Lidstrom has the answers!


Do you have any superstitions concerning your equipment?
Troy Dollaway
Battle Creek, Michigan

Lidstrom: Not really, I’m not superstitious; it’s more of a routine. Tying my left skate before my right skate is something I’ve always done.

Why do you wear the number 5?
Daniel Diedrich
Shelby Twp., Michigan

Lidstrom: The number 5 was handed to me when I came here. I was just happy to get a number. I wore number 9 when I played in Sweden, I knew that wasn’t going to happen when looking up in the rafters you see a banner with Gordie Howe’s name on it, you know that’s not going to happen. I was just happy to have a number, and they handed me 5.

Why is the “C” now on the right side of the jersey instead of the left?
Robert Wayvon
Windsor, Ontario, Canada

Lidstrom: It’s because of the new jerseys. The Red Wings logo now comes up to where to the “C” used to be which is why it doesn’t fit over there, so they moved it to the other side.

What do you think makes a great captain and what are some of the things you do differently now?
Martin Stich
Basel, Ohio

Lidstrom: I’m trying to lead by example. I think I’m more vocal than I’ve been in the past, but I still try to lead by example, I think that’s the best way that you can do it as the captain. You’re teammates look at what you’re doing on the ice and hopefully they’ll follow.

If not a hockey player, what might you have liked to do as a career?
Mariam Dahoui
Dearborn, Michigan

Lidstrom: I would have loved to be a professional soccer player. My favorite team is Liverpool.
