DETROIT (WOOD) — The Detroit Red Wings are saying goodbye to the Joe Louis Arena.
This is their last season at the Joe, which they have called home for 38 years. Before their home opener Monday against the Ottawa Senators, they played a goodbye video narrated by Michigan native Jeff Daniels. That video was also posted on their Twitter account.
In the video, the Joe is described as “The birthplace of Hockeytown.”
“We look forward to turning the page while the newest generation of Red Wings stars writes the next chapter of Hockeytown lore. And we prepare for the future at Little Caesars Arena,” Daniels says in the video. “We affectionately say farewell to Joe Louis Arena. Thanks for the memories, Joe.”
The Wings beat the Senators 5-1 Monday night.
