Grand Marshall Nick

Four Norris Trophies may pale in comparison to this honor for Nick Lidstrom. The Wing Captain will be the Grand Marshall of America's Thanksgiving Day Parade in Detroit. Detroit Free Press/George Sipple
It’s quite an honor,” Lidstrom said. “It’ll be fun to do it.” What are his responsibilities? “Smile and wave,” Lidstrom said. “That’s pretty much it.” Lidstrom said he was asked Thursday to be the grand marshal of the parade. He said he has watched it on television in the past, although his family doesn’t celebrate the holiday. Lidstrom is from Vasteras, Sweden.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
