Report: Draper to retire.

MLIVE.com: reports long-time Detroit Red Wings forward Kris Draper is expected to announce his retirement at a news conference tomorrow morning. It’s expected he’ll move on to a job within the organization.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Not a shocking development. Draper has been for years one of the better defensive forwards in the league, but age and injury have caught up with him. Wouldn’t surprise me if he were to become a coach one day.

  1. Agreed. Seems like he is the type that would make an ideal coach. Loving and knowledgeable yet tough and disciplined. I hope he finds success after his playing days that he did during them.
