From the world of hockey, we have some sad news to share this Friday night. The Red Wings have announced the death of a significant player from the 1950s.

The Detroit Red Wings revealed on social media on Friday that Marty Pavelich, a four-time Stanley Cup champion, had died at the age of 96 after 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.
