As hockey is one of the most popular sports in Detroit, it has the nickname "Hockeytown". The Red Wings are one of the original six teams of the NHL, and have won the Stanley Cup 11 times, most recently in 2007-2008. The Red Wings played at the Joe Louis Arena, named after a heavyweight boxer from Detroit from 1979-2017.
