Detroit Begins Preseason Slate with Three-Straight Home Games

NHL: Preseason-Detroit Red Wings at Toronto Maple Leafs Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today announced their 2018-19 preseason schedule.

The Red Wings will hit the ice for the first time in 2018-19 by hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at Little Caesars Arena. That matchup starts a stretch of three home games in four days, with contests against the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday, Sept. 20 at 7:30 p.m. and the Boston Bruins on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 7:00 p.m. Detroit will then travel for four road games in a six-day span, visiting Pittsburgh on Sunday, Sept. 23 (3:00 p.m.), Chicago on Tuesday, Sept. 25 (8:30 p.m.), Boston on Wednesday, Sept. 26 (7:00 p.m.) and Toronto on Friday, Sept. 28 (7:30 p.m.), prior to the eighth and final preseason game against the division-rival Maple Leafs on Saturday, Sept. 29 at 7:00 p.m. at Little Caesars Arena.

Tickets for all Red Wings home preseason games will go on sale on Monday, Aug. 6 and can be purchased at the Little Caesars Arena XFINITY Box Office (313-471-7575), all Ticketmaster outlets (800-745-3000) or online at The complete 2018-19 preseason schedule can be found below.

Per the CBA, the maximum-allowable number of preseason games for any team is eight and the Wings once again will fill up to that number. Interesting schedule for this one taking the home games so early, but it should give fans in the Detroit area a chance to see some of the kids that likely won’t still be on the roster by the time the preseason draws to a close.

The Red Wings would also like you to know that ticket plans are available now as well. The full regular season schedule will be released next week.


Ticket plans are now available for the 2018-19 season. Red Wings FLEX partial plans are back to give fans the opportunity to design a plan based on their schedule.
