Fans interested in getting a look inside the life of a seven-time Norris Trophy winner and four-time Stanley Cup champion are about to have their wishes come true.

The NHL and NHL Original Productions announced that Detroit Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom will be the next player to be profiled in the all-access series NHL 36. The Red Wings icon, who has spent his entire career with the Detroit organization, is revered by teammates and management for his consistency, his preparation and his leadership. 

NHL Original Productions cameras joined the Red Wings captain Monday and will follow him for 36 straight hours as Lidstrom prepares for and leads his team in back-to-back games: against the Buffalo Sabres at home Monday night (7:30 p.m. ET, MSG-B, FS-D), followed by a trip to Dallas to take on the Stars on Tuesday (8:30 p.m. ET, FS-D,FS-SW). Viewers will follow along as the seven-time Norris Trophy winner travels to and from the rink, takes part in team meetings and enjoys downtime in between. 

NHL 36: Nicklas Lidstrom will air Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 6:30 p.m. on NBC Sports Network. The show will be followed on NBC Sports Network by NHL LIVE at 7 p.m. ET, and the Red Wings’ game in Montreal against the Canadiens at 7:30 p.m. Narration is provided by actor and Emmy Award winner Peter Coyote. The original score is the creation of accomplished composer Ferdinand J. Smith.

NHL 36: Lidstrom will re-air on the NBC Sports Network multiple times including Thursday, Jan. 26 at 5:30 p.m., Friday, Jan. 27 at 9 a.m. and Sunday, Jan. 29 at 7:30 p.m. It also will air in the United States and Canada on NHL Network™ on Friday, Jan. 27 at 12 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 9:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 4 at 5:30 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 5 at 5 p.m. All times are ET.

NHL Original Productions is the latest collaboration between the NHL and renowned executive producer Ross Greenburg -- an alliance that produced two critically-acclaimed programs on HBO: Broad Street Bullies and the Emmy Award-winning 24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic®. Throughout the year, NHL Original Productions will develop long- and short-form hockey programming for use by the League's media platforms (NHL Network and NHL.com) as well as national and regional rights-holders.
