DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland and Brian Rafalski will host a Wednesday morning press conference to discuss the veteran defenceman's future with the organization.

This could be the end of the road for the 37-year-old Rafalski, as multiple reports have indicated that he is set to retire.

Rafalski has played 11 NHL seasons -- including the last four with the Red Wings -- and has won the Stanley Cup three times. He helped Detroit to the 2008 championship after winning it in 2000 and 2003 during his seven-year stint in New Jersey.

Over 833 career games with the Devils and Red Wings, Rafalski has compiled 79 goals and 436 assists. He notched four goals and 44 assists for 48 points in 63 games this past season.

A two-time All-Star selection, Rafalski won two Olympic silver medals with Team USA at Salt Lake City (2002) and Vancouver (2010). Before joining the Devils for the 1999-2000 season, he played professionally in Sweden and Finland after a collegiate career at the University of Wisconsin.
