Red Wings players excited to play Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium
The Detroit Red Wings visited Ann Arbor on Thursday as the NHL officially announced Michigan Stadium as the venue for the 2013 Winter Classic between the Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs.
Red Wings coach Mike Babcock has been to the stadium on many football Saturdays — his daughter, Allie, is a freshman at Michigan — and said he anticipates, "a moment you’ll always remember."
For Red Wings defenseman Niklas Krowall, it was his first visit to Michigan Stadium.
"I’ve never been in a place that seats this many people I’ve never really seen it," Kronwall said. "I think its’ going to be crazy, something very special that we get to be a part of."
