Today, the Red Wings announced their 2017-18 preseason game schedule featuring a load of familiar faces, a four-game homestand preview for the Little Caesar's Arena, and once again a CBA max-possible number of games.
Here's the schedule
2017-18 Red Wings Preseason Schedule
|September 19||Boston Bruins||7:00 PM||AWAY|
|September 20||Pittsburgh Penguins||7:00 PM||AWAY|
|September 21||Chicago Blackhawks||8:30 PM||AWAY|

So once again we get the fun Chicago rivalry, the finish against Toronto, the back-and-forth with Pittsburgh, and the division matchup against the team owned by the guy who owns the concessions license at the Red Wings' new arena.
With so many packed so tightly, we'll once again see the team split into two full squads which will be whittled down as the preseason schedule goes along and roster spots are earned/lost.
According to the team, tickets for the home dates will go on sale Friday, August 4th.
