In Red Wings Land
Kelly, a 1969 inductee into the Hockey Hall of Fame, spent parts of 13 seasons with the Red Wings and wore the red and white sweater for 846 of his 1,316 career games. During his tenure in Detroit, he accumulated 472 points (162-310-472) and 253 penalty minutes, ultimately finishing his career with 823 points (281-542-823) and 327 penalty minutes in 20 NHL seasons between the Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs. Although he finished his career playing center for the Maple Leafs, Kelly was a defenseman for the Red Wings and was the first-ever recipient of the James Norris Memorial Trophy as the league’s top defenseman in 1953-54.
