Defenseman Rick Newell played a half dozen games with the Detroit Red Wings in the early 1970s. He played the body well and cleared the puck from his zone effectively while spending most of his pro career in several minor leagues.

The native of Winnipeg, Manitoba spent two years with the Winnipeg Rangers of the MJHL before enrolling at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. He was originally re-claimed by the New York Rangers as a territorial exemption in 1969 but never made the club. Newell was traded to the Detroit Red Wings in May, 1972 and was recalled briefly in each of the next two seasons.

He was a consistent point producer for the AHL's Virginia Wings before spending the last two months of the 1973-74 season with the London Lions of the British League. Newberry toiled briefly with the WHA's Phoenix Roadrunners then returned to the minors until he retired in 1978.
