In keeping with the Red Wing colors, the jerseys are white and red but feature a modern, stylized “D” as opposed to the teams classic winged wheel or the often used old English “D.” The logo will be displayed as a red icon over a wide white band that angles across the front of the jersey.

Wings fans are able to purchase the jersey online at the official NHL online store (http://shop.nhl.com).

The 2016 game will mark the third time in eight years that Detroit has appeared in an outdoor game.

A transplant from California to Michigan as a teen in 1980, Gregg fell in love with hockey as soon as he watched his first live game between the University of Michigan and Michigan Tech. Gregg is a fan of the Detroit Red Wings, the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins, and Michigan State University. The #1 item on his bucket list - to see at least one live NHL game in every arena in the league.
