Rafalski/Red Wings Schedule Press Conference for Wednesday

Per the Red Wings, Veteran defenseman Brian Rafalski will hold a press conference with General Manager Ken Holland to "discuss his future with the organization".  The conference will be Wednesday the 25th at 11am EDT.

More from the official release:

An undrafted player coming out of the University of Wisconsin, Rafalski fine-tuned his skills in Europe before returning to North America where he enjoyed 11 NHL seasons -- including four with the Red Wings. He was a two-time All-Star and won the Stanley Cup three times, two of which were with the New Jersey Devils in 2000 and 2003.

Rafalski also had an excellent international playing career, winning two Olympic silver medals with Team USA at Salt Lake City (2002) and Vancouver (2010). In Vancouver, Rafalski was named the best defenseman of the tournament, finishing with four goals, four assists and a plus-7 rating in six games.

Rafalski was born and raised in suburban Detroit and attended Southfield Christian High School. He and his wife, Felicity, have three sons.

For those interested in watching the press conference, DetroitRedWings.com will have a live streaming feed.  The feed will go active then.

I'm guessing that they're not going to announce that Rafalski is being given robotic legs or laser-eyes so he can keep playing.
