Today it was announced that The Detroit Pistons will move along with the Detroit Red Wings into the new Little Caesars Arena in Downtown Detroit next year. It is not the first time the two sports teams have shared an arena.
It was just a few years ago when the Red Wings and Maple Leafs played outdoors at Michigan Stadium. That game also included an alumni match up between the two teams. They are set to go at it again with the rosters just released for the alumni game.
New Years Day will see the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs play outdoors once again in the Centennial Classic in Toronto. The day before will see the alumni of both teams go at it at Exhibition Stadium.
We are about a year away from the opening of the new Little Caesars Arena in Downtown Detroit. That is the name for the new arena ,which so far doesn't have a nickname. A Father and Son hope to change that.
It seems like forever since the Red Wings Wrapped up their season losing to the Lightning in Round One of The Playoffs. With The weather getting hotter, it is a good time to think cooler weather and the start of hockey season.
