Hockeytown North: Red Wings, North Stars & High School Champs
If you're a hockey fan, Traverse City is a great place to be.
TC is home to the Detroit Red Wings' pre-season training camp, where area residents and fans from around the country welcome the team to Centre Ice. If you're lucky, you might see one of the Wings around town, fishing on the bay, or getting in some golf at an area course.
When the Wings aren't in town, you can still catch plenty of hockey in Traverse City at Centre Ice. The Traverse City North Stars, a Junior "A" level hockey club and a member of the North American Hockey League, played their inaugural season in 2005-06, and is looking forward to season number two. Check this space for the latest news on the Stars:
