The Red Wings will kick off their season on Thursday (October 4th) with some new faces and some familiar faces.   Their recent captain will be honored as well as the players will once again walk the red carpet before the game. 

According to the Red Wings,   the players will once again walk the red carpet before the game.  Current players as well as select Red Wings alumni will take part in the walk.

This is open to fans so if you are heading down to the game you can be a part of it.  You do not need a ticket to view the players walk.

The walk is set to take place between 4:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. at Chevrolet Plaza at Little Caesars Arena.

Red Wings also announced that  Henrik Zetterberg will be honored by performing the ceremonial puck drop before the game.

I had a feeling that the team would do something to honor him at this game and it will be great to see him acknowledged by the fans one last time.   He unfortunately had to call it a career before the preseason due to back injuries.

The home opener for the Red Wings will be against the Columbus Blue Jackets and is scheduled for Thursday night (October 4th) at 7:30 p.m.
