The Detroit City Council has approved potential tax breaks in the event plans go ahead for a new Red Wings arena.
City Council has called a special session Friday to discuss a management agreement for a Detroit Red Wings sports arena and entertainment complex just outside downtown.

A new hockey arena for the Detroit Red Wings got another step closer to reality Wednesday with Michigan Strategic Fund Board approval of $450 million in bonds for the structure.
