The Detroit Red Wings were not the worst team in the NHL during the 2021-22 season but there were certainly quite a few painful games along the way they finished with one of the worst goal differentials (-82) in the league.
Yet through the thick and thin, one person who has been a familiar face is Red Wings announcer, Mickey Redmond.
Following the Red Wings' final game of the season, which they won, Redmond took some time to thank the fans and everyone who helped out behind the scenes, for their continued support.
Redmond added that he believes the team took some big strides and that before long the team should be competing for a playoff spot and eventually another Stanley Cup.
Until next season, here is Mickey Redmond saying so long after another Red Wings season.

NHL Betting: Top Picks for First-Round Series Bets
Many look to individual games for betting, but there is also a lot of value in choosing the series winner before the puck drops. This betting guide delivers some value picks for series betting on four first-round series. These odds will fluctuate throughout each series, as well, giving bettors the truest odds before the first game is played.
Pittsburgh Penguins (-122) vs New York Rangers (+100)
Rangers goaltender Igor Shesterkin has also been as difficult for the Penguins to solve as 1,000 Rubik’s Cubes. Shesterkin is 3-1 against Pittsburgh this season, and the lone loss was a 1-0 defeat on Feb. 26. He’s stopped 97 of 101 shots against the Penguins, boasting a 1.01 goals-against average and a .960 save percentage. That gives the Rangers a lot of value.
The odds for this series are close, but getting even money for the New York Rangers is too good to pass up. Pittsburgh managed just four goals against the Rangers in the four games, and that doesn’t look like the recipe for success in the postseason. New York has won just one of its last four games, but these are favorable odds for the Rangers in this matchup and won’t be this good for long.
