The NHL Prospect Tournament returns to Traverse City for the 19th season, running from Friday, Sept. 8 through Tuesday, Sept. 12. The eight-team field consists of prospects from the Red Wings, the defending-champion Carolina Hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks, Columbus Blue Jackets, Dallas Stars, Minnesota Wild, New York Rangers and St. Louis Blues.
Over the tournament’s history, 500 skaters and 52 goaltenders have moved on to play in at least one NHL game, including 26 of the 35 players who played for the Red Wings in 2016-17. The tournament will be divided into two four-team divisions, and teams will play each team in their division in a round-robin format before a crossover on the final day of the tournament. The first-place finishers in each division will meet for the Matthew Wuest Memorial Cup on Tuesday, Sept. 12.
Advance tickets for all September Red Wings events are available exclusively online this season at www.centreice.org/drwtickets, starting on Monday, July 10, and will also be sold first-come, first-served at the arena entrance on the day of each event.
