Detroit Red Wings forward Tomas Holmstrom made the long-anticipated announcement on Tuesday afternoon that he's hanging up his skates. Holmstrom officially retired with a press conference at Joe Louis Arena. Holmstrom was a free agent after last season and considered his options for a while before the lockout was put into place, although the options never seemed to be more than returning to the Wings or retiring. The longer it went on the clearer it seemed what his decision would be, and that was hanging them up.
