Would you believe that the Detroit Red Wings acquired forward Kris Draper from the Winnipeg Jets on June 30, 1993 for $1.00? Yes, it is true, because that was the waiver price in the NHL back then.

It was the best buck they ever spent!

Draper retired this week after 20 years in the National Hockey League.

The 40-year-old Draper, helped the Boys from Motown win four Stanley Cups. He has been offered a job in the organization in a front-office capacity.

The Red Wings had offered Draper a two-way contract to play in the minors, come to training camp on a tryout or play for another team. He wasn’t interested in those scenarios at all.

He won the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the NHL’s top defensive forward in 2003-04, when he posted career highs of 24 goals and 40 points despite missing 15 games late in the season with a shoulder injury.

Draper was one of the game’s top checking forwards, faceoff man and penalty killers.

His 1,137 games played with Detroit if fifth in franchise history. He scored 161 goals and 203 assists for 364 points in 1,157 games.
