The Detroit Pistons have an exhibition game scheduled for next week at Little Caesars Arena, as the NBA is forging ahead amid surging COVID-19 numbers.
Which beckons the question: When are we going to see the Detroit Red Wings in action again?
I was going to use the article from The Detroit News about the 20 questions for the Red Wings, but it’s behind a paywall.
I know that the talk about when the season will start is a little repetitive, but right now that’s what hockey stories are dominated by now.
After all, everything else depends on when (and if?) the season starts.
A handful of NHL players -- Vancouver Canucks forwards Elias Pettersson and Zack MacEwen, defenseman Alexander Edler and goalie Thatcher Demko, Detroit Red Wings defenseman Troy Stecher, and free agent defenseman Jason Garrison -- took a journey up a mountain about 60 miles north of Rogers Arena for a quick pickup game.
Like I said above, a lot of hockey articles are about the season starting date. I thought this was a neat divergence from all of those. What a setting for hockey!
