The Wings Are Looking Forward To Playing In Calumet

09/25/2019 at 10:56pm EDT

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

One of the last times Dylan Larkin had a game in the Upper Peninsula, it wasn’t so enjoyable.

“The farthest I’ve been (playing hockey) is Houghton, playing against Michigan Tech when I was at Michigan,” Larkin said. “It wasn’t the best experience. We got swept that weekend.”

Larkin and his Red Wings teammates are sure to have a much different type of experience Thursday.

The Wings and Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues are playing in the annual Hockeyville USA game on Thursday at the Calumet Colosseum.

The Colosseum — with seating for about 700 fans — was built in 1913 and is considered the oldest operating continuous-use ice rink in North America.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. 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.
