Throughout their rich history, the Wings have held a few different team names over the years, such as the Detroit Cougars (1926-1930) Detroit Falcons (1930-1932) and the Red Wings (1932-Present.) The Red Wings have currently won the most Stanley Cups Championships for any American hockey team in the NHL.
The Detroit area is widely known and referred to as “Hockeytown” which has been a registered trademark of the franchise since 1996. The Detroit Red Wings have won 11 Stanley Cups, 6 conference championships, 6 President’s Trophies, and 19 Division Championships. Their uniform and logo has been essentially the same since the 1930’s; the distinct red and white color and the “winged wheel” are an easily recognizable logo to any true hockey fan across the country.
What are the fan traditions during a Red Wings game?
One one the richest fan traditions at Red Wings games is “The Legend of the Octopus” where fans traditionally throw an octopus on the ice surface during playoff games for good luck. The Joe Louis Arena even installed a large octopus wearing a Red Wings jersey to be lowered onto the ice, in which the fans nicknamed “Al.” Don’t forget to study up on your Journey lyrics before visiting a Red Wings game, as “Don’t Stop Believin’” and the unforgettable lyrics “Born and raised in South Detroit” will likely be played over the PA system and you’re expected to belt it out, loud and proud.

What should I do and where should I stay before my Red Wings game?
The newest Detroit District is a booming 50 square block, chock full of historical landmarks and theaters built in turn of the century, bars and nightclubs, top notch casinos, as well as three professional sports arenas: Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers, MLB) Little Caesars Arena (Detroit Red Wings, NHL, and Detroit Pistons, NBA) and Ford Field (Detroit Lions, NFL).
Make sure you swing by the stunning art deco Fox Theater, which was built in 1928 and was named as a National Historic Monument for its architecture. From there, the Detroit Opera House (built in 1922) borders the rejuvenated Campus Martius area of The Detroit District. Campus Martius is a 1.2 acres park in the heart of The Detroit District that offers a large outdoor ice skating rink built to replicate Rockefeller Center’s in New York City. Cadillac Square Park is also nearby.
If you’re an avid Detroit sports fan, make sure you check out the Iron Fist Monument put up in 1986 as a monument to honor Joe Louis and the movement of who was then-considered to be America’s first African American sports hero during World War II. The president at the time, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, said, “Joe, we need muscles like yours to beat the Nazis.” This statue shows that raw power.
From there, take a leisurely stroll down Detroit’s Greektown area, where you can sample some amazing cuisine, as well as Detroit’s rich culture. Detroit is also home to many large casinos, including Dan Gilbert’s Greektown Casino. Other popular Detroit attractions include the Eastern Market, a large year round farmers market and street art center, or a trip to the Shinola factory headquarters or Carhartt historic factory store.
