The 2006–07 Detroit Red Wings season was the 81st National Hockey League season in Detroit, Michigan. The Wings entered a new era, following the retirement of longtime captain Steve Yzerman after 22 seasons in the NHL, all with Detroit.[1] The Wings named Yzerman a team vice-president,[2] Yzerman's #19 was retired by the Wings in January.[3]

The Red Wings lost another longtime Red Wing in Brendan Shanahan, who signed with the New York Rangers, however goaltender Dominik Hasek returned to the Red Wings, signing as a free agent. Hasek has remained one of the league's goaltending leaders, helping the Red Wings remain in contention for top spot in the Western Conference, battling with their division rivals, the Nashville Predators.

Two Red Wings players represented the West at the 55th National Hockey League All-Star Game in Dallas, Texas. Nicklas Lidstrom was elected as a starting defenceman, and registered an assist. He was joined by forward Henrik Zetterberg.[4]

Regular season[edit]

On Thursday, February 8, 2007, the Red Wings lost 1-0 at St. Louis. It was the first time that the Red Wings had been shut out in a regular season game since Wednesday, January 7, 2004, when they lost at home 3-0 to the Boston Bruins. Prior to their loss to the Blues, the Red Wings had gone 175 consecutive regular-season games without being shut out.[5][6][7]
