Forward Kris Draper will announce his retirement following 17 seasons with the Detroit Red Wings Tuesday at an 11 a.m. news conference at Joe Louis Arena.
The team has announced the news conference. A source confirmed that Draper, 40, will announce his retirement.
According to the captions on the Wings’ website photo gallery, Draper will announce his retirement tomorrow.
update: The link has been removed but you can see it was there by the screenshot.
Update #2 via George: This came from RedWingsFeed’s RSS reader around 12:20 PM. The gallery popped up stating that Draper would retire during a press conference on July 26th, I sent an email to Paul, people found it and poof, the gallery disappeared.
Update #3: Paul posted this Tweet from Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos in the comments section:
Congratulations to Kris Draper who will announce retirement as early as tomorrow. Not bad for guy sold from #Jets to #Redwings for $1

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related.

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.
