Red Wings\' Maltby to announce retirement

DETROIT -- Red Wings' forward Kirk Maltby is retiring.

Detroit general manager Ken Holland says that Maltby will announce his retirement Tuesday at a 5:30 p.m. press conference.

Maltby, 37, played 14 seasons with the Red Wings, mostly as a key member of the team's "Grind Line" that shut down opposing scorers and helped the Wings win four Stanley Cups while he was in Detroit.

He played the first two seasons of his NHL career with the Edmonton Oilers.

Maltby's contract expired at the end of last season and he signed a two-way contract with the opportunity to make the team. He played well in exhibitions but not well enough to earn a spot in a deep forward group. Maltby decided not to join Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League.
