Kenneth Mark Holland (born November 10, 1955 in Vernon, British Columbia) is a retired Canadian professional goaltender and current General Manager and executive Vice President of the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League. Holland was drafted in the 12th Round, 188th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1975 NHL Entry Draft. He played a total of four games in the NHL: one with Hartford, and three with Detroit.[1]

ProfessionalEdit

After his playing career was over, Holland took a job with the Red Wings as a scout in Western Canada. He subsequently served seven years as Director of Amateur Scouting and three as Assistant General Manager. On July 18, 1997, he was promoted to his current position of General Manager, Executive Vice President and Alternate Governor of the Detroit Red Wings. The 2007–2008 season was his 11th as General Manager (GM) and his 25th year overall with the Red Wings organization. He has won the Stanley Cup four times with Detroit: the first in 1997 as Assistant General Manager and Goaltending Coach, and the latter three as GM in 1998, 2002 and 2008.[2][3]

His accomplishments as an executive far exceed those he achieved as a player. He has gained a reputation as one of the most successful General Managers in the NHL. Under his leadership as GM the Red Wings have won the Central Division eight times, the Presidents' Trophy four times, and the Stanley Cup three times. With 493 regular season wins and 67 post-season wins, the Red Wings have won more games than any other team in the league since 1997-1998.[1][3]

Personal lifeEdit

Ken and his wife Cindi live in suburban Detroit and have four children: Brad, Greg, Julie, and Rachel.[2]
