The season opening games have been announced. As announced by the team Wednesday morning via Twitter, The Detroit Red Wings will open the 2017-2018 season against the Minnesota Wild on October 5th inside the new Little Caesars Arena.
This will be the inaugural season at the brand new Little Caesars Arena in Downtown Detroit, Michigan. The Red Wings will have their pre-season games played at Little Caesars Arena, but the first regular season game will be played October 5th.
Little Caesars Arena broke ground back in September of 2014. The 20,000 seat arena will be home of the Detroit Red Wings after spending 37 years at Joe Louis Arena.
The full schedule for the 2017-2018 schedule will be released on Thursday.
