The NHL is returning to Traverse City this week for the Detroit Red Wings annual Prospects Camp with the Wings Training Camp taking place next week. Hundreds of potential prospects from eight different NHL teams will hit the ice over the next five days, all in hopes of extending their hockey careers.

It all takes place at Centre Ice Arena from September 5th through the 9th with games beginning on the 6th. Tickets are just $10 per day. For more information you can head to the Detroit Red Wings main website ( or the Centre Ice website (
