Red Wings to hold 2018 development camp at Little Caesars Arena

New, comments

Fans across Metro Detroit will now have an easier time attending the event

DETROIT, Mich — It appears some big changes are in store for the Red Wings annual development camp. The event, which is usually held at Centre Ice in Traverse City, will take place at Little Caesars Arena in downtown Detroit.

There had been prior rumors about the team changing up their summer events. Now that they have a massive state-of-the-art facility with two sheets of ice, perhaps it makes more sense for them to stay at home and introduce prospects and potential young free agents to what’s going on at the new arena, and bring them closer to the fans across Metro Detroit.

The camp will begin the week after the 2018 NHL Draft. Here’s a look at the schedule:

Here is the full release from the team, along with ticket information if you’re trying to go...

The Detroit Red Wings today announced the schedule for their 2018 Development Camp, which will be held at the BELFOR Training Center inside Little Caesars Arena from June 26-30. The camp begins on Tuesday, June 26 and features on-ice skill development and off-ice workouts each day, including a scrimmage on Saturday, June 30.

The camp will be split into two sides, Team Howe and Team Lindsay, and will feature daily on-ice instruction and skill development from a team of coaches, led by the Grand Rapids Griffins coaching staff and the Red Wings player development staff. Attendees will also take part in NHL-level off-ice workouts and attend classes designed to help players transition to professional hockey, while experiencing the state-of-the-art player amenities offered at Little Caesars Arena and receiving feedback from Red Wings coaches and management.

The Red Wings roster, which will be released following the 2018 NHL Entry Draft on June 22-23, will be comprised primarily of players selected by Detroit over the last several Entry Drafts, including 2017 first-round draft pick Michael Rasmussen and 2016 first-round selection Dennis Cholowski, as well as signed free agent prospects and undrafted free agents from collegiate, junior or European leagues. The past four development camps have included 11 players who played for Detroit over the last two seasons: Andreas Athanasiou, Tyler Bertuzzi, Jared Coreau, Martin Frk, Joe Hicketts, Dylan Larkin, Anthony Mantha, Alexey Marchenko, Dan Renouf, Evgeny Svechnikov and Dominic Turgeon.
