Red Wings Announce Development Camp Details

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today announced the schedule for their 2019 Development Camp, which will be held at the BELFOR Training Center inside Little Caesars Arena from June 25-29. The camp begins on Tuesday, June 25 and features on-ice skill development and off-ice workouts each day, ending with a three-on-three tournament on Friday, June 28 and a Red & White Game on Saturday, June 29.

The camp will be split into two teams, Team Howe and Team Lindsay, and will feature daily on-ice instruction and skill development from a team of coaches, led by the Red Wings player development staff. Attendees will also take part in NHL-level off-ice workouts and attend presentations designed to help players transition to professional hockey, while experiencing the state-of-the-art player amenities offered at Little Caesars Arena and receiving feedback from Red Wings coaches and management.

The Red Wings roster, which will be released following the 2019 NHL Entry Draft on June 21-22, will be comprised primarily of players selected by Detroit over the last several Entry Drafts, including 2018 first-round picks Filip Zadina and Joe Veleno, as well as signed free agent prospects and undrafted free agent invitees from collegiate, junior or European leagues. The Red Wings 2018-19 roster consisted of 15 players who had participated in at least one Development Camp over the last five seasons: Andreas Athanasiou, Tyler Bertuzzi, Dennis Cholowski, Christoffer Ehn, Kaden Fulcher, Joe Hicketts, Taro Hirose, Filip Hronek, Dylan Larkin, Anthony Mantha, Michael Rasmussen, Libor Sulak, Evgeny Svechnikov, Dominic Turgeon and Filip Zadina.

Fans may reserve up to six tickets for each day. A complete camp schedule is available below. Parking will be available in the Little Caesars Arena Garage for $7 per day.

Much rather spend those days in Traverse City than Detroit.

Another opportunity to peddle $10 labatts & $6 hot dogs while soaking you for parking at the same time.

I attended the 1987 draft at J.LA. and if memory serves, parking in the garage was free or very cheap. I also recall free pizza slices being given out.

No intentions to do so dd.

Remember, I cover all the teams so very hard to be at this while trying to follow the 30 other teams.

I went last year. Didn’t get tickets this year though or I would have went.

Parking cost me nothing. Parked across from the entrance in the Little Caesars’s parking garage. Went in the construction by way of Clifford and Henry (not Sproat). It was unmanned and the gate was up…but I did get there a half hour earlier than gate opening time. 97.1 was broadcasting from the Plaza.

The seating chart was not followed it was general admission on the ends with the season ticket holders in the middle. Seats were small as I recall. The game was pretty competitive, it was 90’s outside and freezing in the arena and girl that sang the national anthem was falling out of her top. I am positive she didn’t stay for long. There was a girl behind me in sandals that had a purple foot—-so if you are going dress appropriately.

I got no cell signal in the arena and the wifi was available to another carrier. So if you go you there’s a chance you won’t have internet access.

They advertised a restaurant discount to places attached to the arena following the game but the manager of Sports and Social had no idea about it.

If anyone has an extra ticket, you can send it my way. I’d go again to see how some of these guys progressed.
