Forward Kris Draper is hanging up the skates. He’s been with the NHL for 20 seasons; playing for the Red Wings for the last 17.

“Kris Draper has represented the Detroit Red Wings with nothing but class and dedication for the last 17 years,” Wings’ general manager Ken Holland said in a statement. “His extraordinary work ethic has provided a great example for all players within our organization and his influence on the young players in our system will be felt for years to come. “I cannot thank Kris enough for all he has done for us. He is a true professional.”

Draper’s announcement comes a week after Detroit Red Wings’ goalie Chris Osgood announced his retirement.
