DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today announced the details for the third-annual Hockeytown Red Carpet Walk, presented by Coca-Cola and Meijer, prior to the team’s Home Opener on Thursday, Oct. 4 against the Columbus Blue Jackets at the award-winning Little Caesars Arena.

The Hockeytown Red Carpet Walk will be hosted in Chevrolet Plaza starting at 4:15 p.m. and will give fans an opportunity to see their favorite current Red Wings players and alumni walk down a red carpet prior to the Home Opener. The event will take place as each player arrives to Little Caesars Arena from approximately 4:15 p.m. – 5:15 p.m. at Chevrolet Plaza.

Starting outside the Little Caesars Arena Garage, all current Red Wings players and select alumni will walk the red carpet down the center of Chevrolet Plaza to enter Little Caesars Arena. Public address announcer, Erich Freiny, will introduce the players as they begin the walk down the red carpet. Red Wings fans are encouraged to arrive early to line the red carpet and cheer on the team as they prepare for the first regular-season game of the 2018-19 season.

The Hockeytown Red Carpet Walk is free and open to the public. Fans do not need a ticket to the Home Opener to participate in the event. Doors to Little Caesars Arena open at 5:30 p.m. for ticketed fans.

Fans can purchase tickets for the Home Opener at the Little Caesars Arena XFINITY Box Office, online at www.DetroitRedWings.com or by calling the Red Wings Ticket Sales and Service Office at 313-471-7575.


The fun gets underway to celebrate Opening Night with pregame festivities at Chevrolet Plaza and Arena Live starting at 3:00 p.m. Fans with tickets to the game – and fans without tickets – are invited to celebrate the Home Opener with live music and entertainment, interactive games, food and drinks and much more.

The Red Wings Experience, presented by Coca-Cola, will also be set up in Chevrolet Plaza, featuring interactive games designed to give Red Wings fans an opportunity to test their hockey skills, take part in photo opportunities and have the chance to win great prizes.

The pregame party is free to the general public and no ticket is required. All guests entering Chevrolet Plaza, Arena Live and Little Caesars Arena are subject to a security screening.

Additional information on fan experiences scheduled for the Home Opener will be announced at a later date.

Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
