Red Wings Camp In Traverse City - Northern Michigan's News Leader

Red Wings Camp In Traverse City

Posted: Updated:

Hard to believe but it's been two years since the Red Wings last held a training camp here in Traverse City.

There was no preseason last year because of the lockout.

And all parties involved happy to be back on the ice in Northern Michigan.

As for day one of camp, which concluded earlier Thursday afternoon.

The team was broken up into three groups.  

Each group had about an hour of on ice drills along with off ice workouts and watching video.

Then it all concluded with a couple of scrimmages as the coaches and fans got their first look at this year's squad.

Camp will continue through next Wednesday, however the team will play a pair of preseason games in between. Including the preseason opener next Monday in Pittsburgh.
