DSN’s countdown of the most random Detroit Red Wings: No. 5

The Detroit Red Wings have featured not only some of the National Hockey League’s greatest teams in history, but also some of the greatest players to ever lace up the skates. From Gordie Howe to Steve Yzerman, Ted Lindsay to Nicklas Lidstrom, Sid Abel to Sergei Fedorov, and plenty of others in between, Detroit’s is a rich history of some of the biggest names in the game.

But like any team with a history as extensive as Detroit’s, there are plenty of players that fans can certainly be excused if they plain forgot about. Our latest countdown will explore some of those names, and maybe even bring back a few brief memories in the process.

No. 10: Goaltender Norm Maracle
No. 9: Forward Mark Mowers
No. 8: Defenseman Jesse Wallin
No. 7: Defenseman Jamie Rivers
No. 6: Forward Yuri Butsayev

Our countdown continues with a Minnesota native who attended and played hockey at the University of Michigan.

No. 5: Forward Josh Langfeld

Langfeld carved out a solid name for himself in the collegiate ranks, scoring 65 goals for the Michigan Wolverines in four seasons in Ann Arbor – including the the game winning goal against Boston College to win the NCAA title.

He was drafted by the Ottawa Senators in 1997, and appeared sparingly for them before moving on to the San Jose Sharks and then the Boston Bruins.

In July of 2006, he was signed by the Red Wings as an unrestricted free agent. In 33 games for Detroit during the 2006-07 season, he recorded just two assists.

He would later play in the Nashville Predators organization before playing hockey overseas.
