4. And in the historical department:

On this day in 1963, @DetroitRedWings‘ Gordie Howe scored his 545th career goal to become the NHL’s all-time leading goal scorer #Hockey365 #LGRW pic.twitter.com/NsIntNBVcR— Mike Commito (@mikecommito) November 10, 2020

On this day (Nov 9) in 1973, @DetroitRedWings centre Alex Delvecchio retires partway through his 24th NHL season sitting 2nd in league history to ex-teammate Gordie Howe when it comes to career points (1281). He will take over as DET head coach & adds GM to his title after ’73-74 pic.twitter.com/9fgz2uhzkQ— StatsCentre (@StatsCentre) November 10, 2020

Update: 5. I remember this night:

On this day in 1991. Numbers 7️⃣ & 🔟 are retired to the rafters at Joe Louis Arena. pic.twitter.com/HF336vcquy— Detroit Red Wings (@DetroitRedWings) November 10, 2020

Update #2:

There will indeed be a reverse retro jersey for all 31 teams, I’m told. The unveiling is scheduled for Monday, November 16. https://t.co/7TUR0LgEQM— Rob Williams (@RobTheHockeyGuy) November 10, 2020
