Red Wings, Flyers to tangle in London [Ontario] next fall

Well this is different, per Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia’s Tim Panaccio:

This time, it’s not going to be the Toronto Maple Leafs or the Ottawa Senators, but the Detroit Red Wings. The Flyers’ annual preseason visit north of the border to London, Ont., will see them face the Red Wings at John Labatt Centre on Sept. 22.

“London truly is our home away from home,” said Comcast-Spectacor President and Global Spectrum chairman Peter Luukko. “The fan support here in London for the Flyers is outstanding. The John Labatt Centre is a fantastic hockey arena that our players enjoy visiting. To be playing the Detroit Red Wings here in London is a dream match-up for hockey fans in Southwestern Ontario and Eastern Michigan. It’s going to be a terrific night of hockey in the City of London.”

George, you scared the shite out of me, until I read down and saw the word “Ontario”.

I thought we were getting sent across the big pond again, and I have bad memories of the last time that happened.

What he said. I about panicked until I re-read the title. Thanks for that, George.

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.
