Mickey Redmond played right wing for the Montreal Canadiens from 1967-1971, winning Stanley Cups with them in 1968 and 1969. He scored 27 goals for the Canadiens in the 1969–70 season. Halfway through the 1970–71 NHL season he was traded to the Red Wings in a deal that sent superstar Frank Mahovlich to Montreal. His promise was fulfilled the season following, when he scored 42 goals on a line centered by veteran star Alex Delvecchio. In 1972–1973, Redmond became the seventh player in NHL history and the first Red Wing player to score fifty goals in a season. He finished a career year with 52 goals and 93 points, surpassing Gordie Howe's team record of 49. Redmond's record would stand until John Ogrodnick tallied 55 goals during the 1985 season. Delvecchio retired early in the 1973–74 season to become the team's coach, and Redmond was moved onto a line with budding superstar Marcel Dionne. Redmond's success continued, and he became only the third player to achieve back to back fifty goal seasons with 51 goals (including an NHL leading 21 power play goals). In the 1974–75 season Redmond sustained a back injury and played only 29 games. His back woes continued the following year; after 37 games he retired early at the age of 28. He had been named to the league's First All-Star Team in 1973, the Second Team in 1974, and he played in one All-Star Game.
