We have some sad news to pass along in the hockey world on Friday evening as the Red Wings have announced the passing of a key member of the organization from the 1950s.

In a post on social media on Friday, the Detroit Red Wings announced that four-time Stanley Cup champion Marty Pavelich has passed away at the age of 96 following a brief illness.
"The Detroit Red Wings are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Martin Nicholas (Marty) Pavelich, who passed away on Thursday at the age of 96 after a brief battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis." The Red Wings said.

The Sault Ste. Marie native joined the Detroit Red Wings in 1947 and spent ten seasons with them before retiring following the 1956-57 campaign.
In 634 career games with the Detroit Red Wings, Pavelich had 252 points (93 goals, 159 assists) and 454 penalty minutes. He went on to add 28 points in 91 playoff games, helping Detroit win the Stanley Cup in 1950, 1952, 1954 and 1955.
The thoughts of everyone here at Blade of Steel are with Pavelich's family and friends at this difficult time.
