MIKE ILITCH & THE RED WINGS IN 1982

Today in 1982, Little Caesar's Mike Ilitch purchased the Detroit Red Wings. At the time, they were an ailing team who hadn't won a championship since 1955.  Pictured above, Ilitch is shaking a young rookie's hand in 1983... Steve Yzerman.

 

Michigan and The Motor City thank you, Mike.

 

Love,
