He was a four-time Stanley Cup champion (1950, 1952, 1954, 1955).


«On behalf of the entire Red Wings organization I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the Pavelich family,» said Red Wings Governor and CEO, Chris Ilitch. «Marty was beloved by all those who knew him, including my parents, Mike and Marian Ilitch. He was an integral part of four Stanley Cup championship teams for the Red Wings in the 1950's and one of the hardest working players of his generation. He will be greatly missed.»

Pavelich spent his entire ten-year NHL career with the Detroit Red Wings, who was long thought to be one of the best defensive forwards in the game.
