The transition game is well underway in Detroit. The Red Wings are in the process of handing the reigns of their future over to the youngsters in the organization, people like Dylan Larkin, who broke the record as the fastest skater at the 2016 NHL All Star Skills Competition, and 2013 first round draft pick Anthony Mantha. The new stars will shine on a new ice surface. In 2017, Little Caesars Arena opened, a state of the art facility that replaced Joe Louis Arena. The new rink brings the Wings into the modern ers, joining almost every other NHL team.

How To Make Money Betting On Detroit Red Wings
They call Detroit Hockeytown, but there’s a long-standing tradition in this hockey town that leaves those new to the game feeling somewhat puzzled. Every time the Wings take the ice, you can count on at least one octopus to rain down from the stands onto the ice surface.
The octopus first hit the ice during the 1952 Stanley Cup playoffs, when the Wings went a perfect 8-0 to sweep to the title. Two brothers who owned an area fish market concocted the idea to fire the mollusk to the ice, thinking the eight tentacles of the octopus represented the eight wins it took to claim Lord Stanley’s mug.
The tradition caught on and it continues to this day. When the Wings are in the playoffs, watch for prop bets on how many octopus might hit the ice during the course of a game.
