FIVE DETROIT RED WING players from Michigan were given a hard hat tour of the team's new hockey arena last month. Intermingled with construction workers at the site, wearing red jerseys and holding the tools of their trade are Red Wing players (l-r) Luke Glendening (from Grand Rapids), Dylan Larkin (Waterford), Justin Abdelkader (Muskegon), Danny DeKeyser (Warren) and Drew Miller (East Lansing). The banner on the ground, give or take a few feet, covers the actual center ice spot in the new arena. Construction on the $450 million, 18,000-seat stadium is progressing nicely with union trades and their contractors working under Barton Malow-White-Hunt. "Knowing what it's gonna be and seeing the plans and seeing what it looks like here, I think the location is great, gets the blood flowing gets you excited for an opportunity to play in the new building," Abdelkader told WXYZ-TV.
