The Red Wings will probably cancel training camp soon, but will hold youth camp in TC

Via RedWingsCamps on Twitter, and per the Red Wings' website, the Wings are all but certain to cancel training camp over the course of the next day or two, but they plan on at least holding a youth hockey camp at Centre Ice Arena this weekend, and assistant coach Bill Peters, former Wings Chris Chelios and Chris Osgood, video coach Keith McKittrick and goalie coach Jim Bedard will be taking part in said camp:

The Detroit Red Wings will hold a free youth hockey clinic presented by ITC this Saturday, Sept. 22, at Centre ICE Arena in Traverse City, Mich., as part of the Detroit Red Wings' ongoing ‘Hockeytown Thanks' initiative. More than 200 young hockey players between the ages of seven and 14 will have the chance to take hockey instruction from members of the Red Wings' coaching staff and former Red Wings players.

"The Centre ICE management and staff is very excited the Detroit Red Wings organization and ITC are offering this free youth hockey clinic to our hockey association and the Grand Traverse area," Centre ICE Executive Director Terry Marchand said. "After sending out the word of this free clinic, we filled it within hours."

The camp will consist of four sessions for the youth hockey players from the Traverse City area, each receiving one hour of on-ice instruction and 45 minutes of dryland training. The all-morning clinic will feature Assistant Coach Bill Peters, Goaltending Coach Jim Bedard, Assistant Coach Keith McKittrick, former Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios and goaltender Chris Osgood.

"This is a great opportunity for young hockey players to learn from some of the best," said Gregory Ioanidis, president, ITC Michigan. "ITC is proud to support the Detroit Red Wings Youth Hockey Clinic and sponsor this free program for young players."

Each child will receive a DRW youth hockey jersey presented by ITC. More information on the Red Wings' youth hockey clinic can be obtained by contacting Phil Pierce at (313) 396-7482 or Phil.Pierce@Hockeytown.com or by visiting http://www.TCHockey.com

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.
