2017-18 Red Wings set to play on FOX Sports Detroit
FOX Sports Detroit will televise 70 regular-season and three preseason games during its coverage of the 2017-18 Detroit Red Wings.
Regular-season coverage begins Oct. 7 at Ottawa. We will air a special one-hour Red Wings LIVE for the first preseason game at Little Caesars Arena (Sept. 23 vs. Boston) and our first regular-season telecast (Oct. 16 vs the Tampa Bay).
Among the games produced by FOX Sports Detroit, nine are slated to air on FOX Sports Plus. Our other preseason TV offerings are: Sept. 25 vs. Pittsburgh and Sept. 29 vs. Toronto.
All 82 regular-season games, including 17 Original Six matchups, will be available on television, with 12 games on NBC or NBCSN.
“We are looking forward to telling the story of the first season of Little Caesars Arena,” said Greg Hammaren, senior vice president/general manager of FOX Sports Detroit. “As big hockey fans, we are looking forward to bringing you the compelling action on the ice 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. John Keating will host Red Wings LIVE and Trevor Thompson will serve as a sideline reporter for Red Wings broadcasts.
FOX Sports Detroit’s comprehensive coverage, presented by Belle Tire, includes pregame and postgame editions of Red Wings LIVE. In addition to live reports from Little Caesars Arena and road venues, studio portions of Red Wings LIVE will originate from FOX Sports Detroit’s Studio in Southfield.
