DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Red Wings say the team's longtime public address announcer Budd Lynch has died. He was 95.

Red Wings spokesman John Hahn says Lynch died Tuesday morning in Michigan. Hahn says the team plans to release additional information later in the day.

Lynch served with the Essex Scottish Regiment during World War II and lost an arm in a rocket attack. He later joined the Wings as a broadcaster.

Lynch was public address announcer at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit for more than 25 years.
