Who was the first player to score 50 goals in a Detroit Red Wings uniform?
Gordie Howe? Nope. He never scored 50 goals. His highest was 49 in 1952-53.
Frank Mahovlich? Sorry, try again. Steve Yzerman? No, he wasn't the first. John Ogrodnick? Great guess, but not him either.
The answer, which should have been obvious given the big, bold-lettered title on the top of this page, is Mickey Redmond.
Mickey Redmond scored 52 goals in 1972-73, becoming only the 7th player in National Hockey League history to score more than 50 goals in one season. The sharp-shooting right wing from Kirkland Lake, Ontario had joined the ranks of Maurice Richard, Boom Boom Geoffrion, Bobby Hull, Phil Esposito, Vic Hadfield and John Bucyk. Rick MacLeish joined this elite group just one week later.
