Wings’ Site Indicates Draper Retirement

Great catch by the Winging it in Motown guys, who caught that the Red Wings’ web site posted a Kris Draper photo gallery with a caption indicating he will retire.

The gallery has since been removed but I grabbed a screen shot of it.

New media has tripped the Wings up before, with a third-party provider sending out the false announcement that Steve Yzerman would return from retirement in the fall of 2006. That said, while this clearly wasn’t supposed to be released yet (hence its removal) I don’t think the information is incorrect.
