Red Wings Announce 2018 Exhibition Schedule

The Detroit Red Wings will face a familiar slate of opponents during the 2018 preseason, with home and away matchups against the Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Toronto Maple Leafs.

The last time the Red Wings faced a team other than those four in a preseason game was 2011, when the Philadelphia Flyers were on their exhibition slate rather than the Bruins.  Detroit was to face Washington in the 2012 preseason that was lost to the league’s lockout of the players.

Detroit’s exhibition schedule is as follows:

Date Opponent Location Time
September 19, 2017 Pittsburgh Penguins Home 7:30 PM
September 20, 2017 Chicago Blackhawks Home 7:30 PM
September 22, 2017 Boston Bruins Home 7:00 PM
September 23, 2017 Pittsburgh Penguins Away 3:00 PM
September 25, 2017 Chicago Blackhawks Away 8:30 PM
September 26, 2017 Boston Bruins Away 7:00 PM
September 28, 2017 Toronto Maple Leafs Away 7:30 PM
September 29, 2017 Toronto Maple Leafs Home 7:00 PM
