DETROIT (AP) -- Nicklas Lidstrom says it feels different walking into the Detroit Red Wings' dressing room as a retired defenseman.
The seven-time Norris Trophy winner, though, insists he has no regrets about choosing to end his NHL career.
Lidstrom spoke to reporters at Joe Louis Arena on Friday after the Red Wings skated to prepare for a game against the Anaheim Ducks. The 42-year-old Lidstrom could still be playing. He turned down a chance to resume his career this year during lockout-shortened season.
Lidstrom says he's enjoying being with his wife and children back home in Sweden. He is an assistant coach for his 12-year-old son's hockey team and occasionally scouts prospects for the Red Wings.
