PLYMOUTH WHALERS HIT THE ICE IN TRAINING CAMP NEXT WEEK

PLYMOUTH – The Ontario Hockey League’s Plymouth Whalers will start the 2013-14 season with the team’s annual training camp from Monday, Aug. 26 through Friday, Aug. 30 at Compuware Arena in Plymouth.
After several days of off-ice testing, getting fitted for equipment and finalizing schedules at the Plymouth-Canton Educational Park, the Whalers hit the ice in scrimmages on Thurs. Aug. 29 and Fri. Aug. 30 from 9-11 am and 2-4 pm at Compuware Arena. The scrimmages are open to the public and media. Rosters will be provided the day of the scrimmage.
Plymouth plays its first pre-season game on Sat. Aug. 31 at 7 pm at Eddie Edgar Ice Arena in Livonia against Windsor in a game for charity. One hundred percent of the proceeds generated in the game benefit the Livonia Fallen Heroes Memorial at the Larry Nehasil Park in Livonia.

Tickets can be purchased at Livonia Police Department (734-466-2470), Compuware Arena (734-453-8400), Eddie Edgar Ice Arena (734-427-1280), Livonia Chamber of Commerce (734-427-2122) and the Livonia Community Recreation Center (734-466-2900).

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.
