“We’ve removed the fencing, and we put in bleachers — three or four feet back from the board,” said Wings spokesman Rob Mattina.”So, you’re gonna be really close and you should be able to hear everything Coach Babcock’s saying as well as some of the comments from the players.

Mattina said one of the players will be wearing a microphone, but who that will be is a surprise.

After practice there will be a Q&A with fans.
