The Windsor Spitfires will be playing a special “Farewell to the Joe” game against the Saginaw Spirit at Joe Louis Arena on Sunday, December 4th at 4pm.
“We’re excited to be part of another historic hockey event in the city of Detroit,” General Manager Warren Rychel said. “Our players, fans and staff all had an amazing experience at the outdoor game back in 2013. The chance to play at the Joe, one of the great shrines of the hockey world, is another opportunity to share a once-in-a-lifetime experience with our fans and the families of our players.”
In addition to the greats who played for the Red Wings there, the Joe has a significant connection to junior hockey. The Detroit Junior Red Wings won a Ontario Hockey League title while calling the venue home back in 1995.
Tickets go on sale starting Thursday night, November 3rd, during the game versus Saginaw. Ticket information can be found here.
