The Malik Report

Update: As of noon, I’m sittin’ here at the rink, and there’s a forest of sticks and gloves around me as the players are in the gym and will then engage in some “golf ball” hockey: A biggy note from Centre Ice Arena: If you were planning on attending today’s abbreviated sessions at the Red Wings’ summer development camp at Centre Ice Arena, I arrived at the rink to see a big white board state that the on-ice portions of the camp had been canceled as Ryan Martin informed me that, technically speaking, “The ice went out,” and the Wings are hoping that it will recover this afternoon.
Update/edit: The Red Wings confirm:
DRW SCHEDULE UPDATE: Due to technical difficulties at the rink, there is no on-ice activity today.
On ice activity at Centre Ice is expected to resume on Tuesday at 8:30 A.M. and 2:30 P.M. Admission is $5.
The skates were scheduled to take place from 9:30-11:30 and 12-2 PM today, but they should get back to their 8:30-10:30 AM and 2:30-4:30 PM schedule tomorrow and Wednesday, should the coolant in the rink respond, and then there will be a scrimmage from 8:30-10:30 AM on Thursday…
This marks the second camp in a row where ice issues have shelved a day of skating, so my question to you is simple: as the gents do their plyometrics and work out in the gym, which I don’t have access to, do you want an overweight blogger to take notes on their techniques and wait for questions from the players in the middle of the day, or should I take the MSM’s hint and head back to the hotel? The guys are going to be in the gym until 11:30, and you paid for me to come up here, so let me know what you want me to do.

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.
