The Detroit Red Wings have neglected Larry Aurie for way to many years. Others, great ones as well have been honored, yet this person, Larry Aurie has been forgotten and was the first great one in Red Wings storied history.
Larry Aurie was one of the Red Wings' first great players. He was Detroit's representative in the NHL's first all-star game in 1934. He led the league in goals one season and was top-three in the league in points in another. In 1937, Aurie was one of the six players named to the NHL's post-season first-team all-stars. And most importantly, Aurie was a key part of the Red Wings' first two Stanley Cup champions.
We are asking that the Detroit Red Wings and the Management recognize Larry Aurie's # 6 and place his jersey in it's proper place next to Gordie Howe, Alex Delvecchio, Terry Sawchuk, Sid Able, Ted Lindsay and Steve Yzerman. Please fix this tragedy.
By signing this petition you are supporting our cause to get Larry Aurie's #6 Jersey raised to the rafter at the Joe Louis Arena and to have the Detroit Red Wings recognize he was truly the first Detroit Red Wings superstar.
The Larry Aurie to the Rafters petition to Detroit Red Wings was written by Anthony Hagen and is in the category Sports at GoPetition.
