from rory Boylen of The Hockey News,
The last time the Detroit Red Wings missed the playoffs…
• Gustav Nyquist was less than one year old. Today, he leads the Red Wings with 28 goals.
• Wayne Gretzky had just completed a 40-goal, 142-point season in his second year with the Los Angeles Kings.
• Teemu Selanne, who missed most of the season with a leg injury, had just finished scoring 12 points in 11 games with Jokerit. He would play two more seasons in Finland before coming over to play in the NHL with Winnipeg. Meanwhile, Jaromir Jagr scored 50 points in 51 games for Kladno in Czechoslovakia (yes, it was still called that) and would make his NHL debut the following season.
• Alexander Mogilny had just completed his rookie NHL season and Martin Brodeur wouldn’t be drafted by New Jersey until after the playoffs.
• The following players also made their debuts: Rob Ray, Donald Audette, Rob Blake, Andrew Cassels, Vyacheslav Fetisov, Curtis Joseph, Tie Domi, Igor Larionov and Olaf Kolzig.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
