Reclaiming Hockeytown: 2013 Off-Season Report 
Posted on October 8, 2013 at 10:29 AM.


Detroit, Mi (Sept. 23rd, 2013) - As the Red Wings get set to open up the 2013 - 2014 NHL Preseason they had a very busy off season that saw one player move on while seeing some extra tough guy presence move in.

Detroit was forced to let go of Valtteri Filppula due to a short cap space that they had. While Detroit was able to keep most of who they believe will be the future of Detroit hockey they also went out on the free agent market to pick up some more help at the left wing position where they were lacking the most at.

Detroit went out and picked up Frazer McLaren and Andreas Nodl from the free agent market to help out. McLaren is a known tough guy who was with the Toronto Maple Leafs last season. This move alone shows that Detroit is looking to be a tougher team not only defensively but also being able to bang it out when needed to as well.

Detroit gets set to get things rolling in the 2013-2014 NHL Preseason tonight when they drop the puck at the Joe Louis Arena against the Florida Panthers at 8:00pm.
