FSDetroit to host Premiere Week

New, comments

After going without hockey for what seems like forever over the summer, you may be on Red Wings overload by October 10 thanks to the great lineup of content FOX Sports Detroit has planned. FSD will host Premiere Week, ten days of Red Wings shows and games starting October 1. You can view the complete TV lineup at FoxSports.com, but here is some of the programming I'm especially looking forward to:

Saturday, Oct. 3
2:00 pm - Red Wings Season Preview
2:30 pm - Red Wings Live pregame (HD)
3:00 pm - Red Wings vs. St. Louis Blues, in Stockholm, Sweden (HD)
5:30 pm - Red Wings Live postgame (HD)

Sunday, Oct. 4
5:00-6:30 pm -- Red Wings "Spotlight" episodes (Pavel Datsyuk, Henrik Zetterberg, and Nicklas Lidstrom)

Tuesday, Oct. 6
10:00 pm - Under the Lights: Red Wings Prospect Camp

Wednesday, Oct. 7

You may also want to note that there is no longer a Red Wings Weekly program, but fear not it is now being called WINGSPAN. I'm not sure why there was a name change for the program, but it looks like it will have the same content and features that we saw in Red Wings Weekly.

Red Wings Premiere Week also includes the debut of WINGSPAN (replacing the long-running Red Wings Weekly). WINGSPAN will encompass all things Red Wings related from player profiles to behind the scenes access, to community and grass roots hockey involvement, Red Wings history and tradition, and still include the popular 'Lessons with Larry' segments with Hall of Famer Larry Murphy and the Emmy award winning "Trev Takes On" segments with Trev Thompson squaring off against Red Wings players in various skills situations.
