Among the games produced by FOX Sports Detroit, 12 are slated to air on FOX Sports Plus. Our preseason TV offerings are: Sept. 30 vs. Boston, Oct. 5 vs. Pittsburgh and Oct. 8 vs. Toronto.
All 82 regular-season games, including 13 Original Six match-ups, will be available on television, with 11 games on NBC or NBCSN.
"We are looking forward to getting this new season started and celebrating the Farewell to the Joe season," said Greg Hammaren, senior vice president/general manager of FOX Sports Detroit. "The Ilitch family’s commitment to the Red Wings and Detroit compels us to bring our best effort each and every night."
Calling the action again this season on FOX Sports Detroit is the popular team of Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond. Red Wings LIVE studio analysts Chris Osgood and Darren Eliot return for another season, as well. Eliot and Osgood will also serve as a game analyst for select road games this season.
