Red Wings look forward to ‘cool experience’ of playing in Calumet Colosseum | Detroit News

The Wings and Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues are playing in the annual Hockeyville USA game on Thursday at the Calumet Colosseum.

The Colosseum — with seating for about 700 fans — was built in 1913 and is considered the oldest operating continuous-use ice rink in North America.

This is one preseason game that I’m actually looking forward to watching.
