HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Hockeytown is heading north for training — but some of its citizens are taking time-outs along the way for some community good will.

Detroit Red Wings players on Tuesday are stopping at a military base, children’s hospital, police training academy, U.S. Coast Guard station and two elementary schools. Eleven players divided into three groups will make the stops across Michigan’s Lower Peninsula en route to the team’s annual training camp in Traverse City.

Stops include Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Harrison Township near Mount Clemens, Bronson’s Children Hospital in Kalamazoo and the Michigan State Police Training Academy in Lansing. Players also will visit schools in Frankenmuth and Mount Pleasant, and the Coast Guard station in Grand Haven.

The stops are closed to the public.
