NHL to ‘make announcement & host/jersey unveiling’ at Joe Louis Arena on Sunday

Pursuant to Sportsnet's John Shannon's statement that the 2014 Winter Classic will be officially awarded to Detroit on Sunday, I received this little tidbit in my inbox this morning (and I've removed the media RSVP part because it's not relevant):

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE TO MAKE ANNOUNCEMENT & HOST UNVEILING
AT JOE LOUIS ARENA IN DETROIT SUNDAY, APRIL 7 AT 10:30 A.M. ET

WHAT:        NHL Special Event Press Conference, Jersey Unveiling & Media Availability

WHEN:        Sunday, April 7 10:30 a.m. ET

WHERE:        Joe Louis Arena

Television networks planning any live content from the arena must indicate those plans on RSVP.

Update: Whoops, I just got up (long couple of days), so I didn't know that MLive's Ansar Khan beat me to the punch.

And yes, as the Detroit News notes, it's very convenient that the Wings and Blues will tangle in an NBC game at 12:30 PM on Sunday. Free infomercial!

Update #2: The Wings will stream the presser.

1st outdoor classic = wear a version of the team’s historical 1st jersey from 1926

2nd outdoor classic = wear a combination version of the team’s historical 3rd jersey? from 1928 mixed with it’s 5th from ‘33-‘34

<b>HUH?<b>

How about using the team’s 2nd (and 4th) jersey from 1927 (&‘29-‘30). The one shown in the picture to the left and the one they wore during the 1991-92 season (the NHL’s 75th anniversary) when they played original 6 games.

Guess that would be asking too much. Or more likely result in less sales since many Wings fans already have that jersey still.

The ‘28-‘29 Cougars sweater would be a great idea.

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.
