The Malik Report

USA Today’s Kevin Allen points out that Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom and Anaheim Ducks forward Teemu Selanne aren’t the only 40-plus-year-olds who have managed to stave off old man retirement:
Right wing Mark Recchi (Boston), 43, is among the most important forwards on a Bruins’ team that has aspirations of reaching the Stanley Cup Final. The spunky forward is second on the team with 33 assists, plus he has 15 goals and he’s plus-15.
Goaltender Dwayne Roloson (Tampa), 41, is a No. 1 goalie with a .912 save percentage and four shutouts this season.
Center/wing Mike Modano (Detroit), 40: Although his season was undermined by a freak skate accident that cut his arm earlier this season, he scored a wondrous goal against Pittsburgh last week. Still skates like he’s a young man.

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.
