1970s

Mickey Redmond became the first Red Wing to score 50 goals in a season in 1972-73 (he did it again the following season). Other '70s highlights included Marcel Dionne's 121 points and Danny Grant's 50 goals in 1974-75.

The team also moved to Joe Louis Arena in December 1979 and it hosted the NHL All-Star Game in January 1980. The contest featured 50-year old Gordie Howe, who was in his last season with the Hartford Whalers after returning to pro hockey in 1973-74 in the World Hockey Association - he had retired from the Red Wings following the 1970-71 season.
