KITCHENER, Ont. (AP) -Former Detroit Red Wings player Earl (Dutch) Reibel, who helped the team win back-to-back Stanley Cups in the mid-1950s, had died. He was 76.

Reibel died Wednesday in Kitchener, Ont., from complications resulting from a recent stroke, according to a death notice posted by the family.

He joined the Red Wings in 1953 and helped them win Stanley Cups in 1955 and 1956.

Reibel finished in the top 10 in NHL scoring in each of his first three years and won the Lady Byng Trophy in 1957.

He was the only player to dethrone Gordie Howe as the Red Wings' top scorer between 1950 and 1964, beating him by four points in 1955.
