NEW YORK (Jan. 16, 2012) – The National Hockey League (NHL) and NHL Original Productions today announced Detroit Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom as the next NHL player to be profiled in the all-access series NHL 36. The Red Wings icon, who has spent his entire career with the Detroit organization, is revered by teammates and management for his consistency, his preparation and his leadership.

NHL Original Productions cameras joined the Red Wings’ captain today and will follow him for 36 straight hours as Lidstrom prepares for and leads his team in back-to-back games: against the Buffalo Sabres at home tonight (7:30 p.m. ET, MSG-B, FS-D), followed by a trip to Dallas to take on the Stars tomorrow (8:30 p.m. ET, FS-D,FS-SW).  Viewers will follow along as the seven-time Norris Trophy winner travels to and from the rink, takes part in team meetings and enjoys downtime in between.

The original score is the creation of accomplished composer Ferdinand J. Smith.
