The Detroit Red Wings announced their preseason schedule for the 2019 campaign on Tuesday.
Some of Detroit’s traditional exhibition matchups have been shaken up. While they will still play at home and on the road against the Chicago Blackhawks, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Toronto Maple Leafs, their series with the Boston Bruins has been replaced by one with the New York Islanders. Additionally, the Red Wings will host the St. Louis Blues in Calumet, MI, for the Kraft Hockeyville USA game.
It marks the first time the Red Wings have changed up their preseason opponents since 2011, when the Bruins replaced the Philadelphia Flyers on the schedule. The Washington Capitals were to play against Detroit in the 2012 slate of games that was cancelled by that season’s NHL lockout.
