The Detroit Red Wings today announced their 2015-16 preseason schedule.
The Detroit Red Wings will hold a special equipment and memorabilia sale at Hockeytown Authentics in Troy (1845 E. Big Beaver Rd.) on Saturday, June 6, from 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
General manager Ken Holland says the Red Wings will not announce a new coach until the Griffins are finished with the playoffs.
The first regret Babcock mentioned was comical – “I would have put a pool in when I first arrived.”

“Is it about money? Sure it’s about money,” Babcock continued. “But there was enough money in every place it didn’t have a factor in the decision.”
The Detroit Red Wings today announced that they have agreed to terms with center Dylan Larkin on a three-year entry-level contract.
Babcock is leaving on good terms and deserves nothing but respect from Detroit.
“It was very emotional,” Babcock said. “I had to get the Kleenex box out when I sat in his office.”
The Detroit Red Wings are ready to start searching for a new coach — and right now there’s only one clear candidate.
“I’ve got mixed emotions because he is one of the greatest coaches in the league, if not the greatest coach in the league,” said Holland.
