Let’s go Red Wings!! As a big Red Wings fan I’m ready for the preseason games at home this weekend, and the upcoming season!! Nothing beats hockey baby in Hockeytown!

The Red Wings announced today that Nicklas Lidstrom, one of the greatest defensemen of all time, will be participating in one of the two alumni games at Comerica Park on Dec. 31. Happy New Year!! It will be great to watch Lidstrom back on the ice again!

The Winter Classic between the Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs takes place on Jan. 1 at Michigan Stadium. Are you going to that game? I’m hoping for some tickets this Christmas!!

Lidstrom, retired in 2012 following 20 seasons in Detroit. The club will raise his No. 5 to the rafters at Joe Louis Arena in a pregame ceremony on March 6. What a special night that will be.
