DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Red Wings retired Nicklas Lidstrom’s No. 5 jersey.

Lidstrom was honored before Detroit hosted the Colorado Avalanche. A red banner — with his last name and number in white — was raised to the rafters to end the pregame ceremony.

The Swede retired after the 2011-12 season — his 20th with the Red Wings. He won four Stanley Cups and seven Norris Trophies as the NHL’s best defenseman.
