FOX Sports Detroit will televise a minimum of 41 regular-season games and one preseason scrimmage during its coverage of the 2012-13 Detroit Red Wings.
Regular-season coverage begins Saturday with the season opener at St. Louis. The preseason schedule includes a scrimmage against the Grand Rapids Griffins, the American Hockey League affiliate. The Wings home opener is set for Jan. 22 vs. Dallas.
Among the 41 games produced by FOX Sports Detroit, six are slated to air on FOX Sports Detroit Plus.
All 48 regular-season games will be available on television with four games on NBC and three games on NBCSN.
“This season is going to be a sprint and we could not be more excited to televise each and every game on our 41-game schedule,” said Greg Hammaren, FOX Sports Detroit senior vice president/general manager. “Our commitment and passion regarding the Wings is greater than ever and look forward to providing Red Wings fans some of the best coverage throughout the NHL.”
Calling the action again this season on FOX Sports Detroit is the popular team of Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond. Larry Murphy, former Red Wings defenseman and Hockey Hall of Famer, substitutes for Redmond during select road games and is part of the home game coverage.
FOX Sports Detroit’s comprehensive coverage includes pregame and postgame editions of RED WINGS LIVE. In addition to live reports from Joe Louis Arena and road venues, studio portions of RED WINGS LIVE will originate from FOX Sports Detroit’s Call Sam Studio at its Southfield headquarters.
A half-hour Red Wings season preview special premieres Saturday at 7 p.m.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
