Winter Classic Alumni Game: Red Wings Add Red Berenson, Aaron Ward, Others

The Detroit Red Wings have been adding some very solid names to their Alumni Game for the Winter Classic festivities at the end of the year. Previously, they added in Vyacheslav Fetisov and Igor Larionov to unite one of the most explosive pairings in hockey's storied history, and now they've got some more solid names to add to the roster.

According to the official website, Dennis Polonich, who is notably the shortest drafted player to play for the Red Wings, has been added to the roster. On top of that, defenseman Aaron Ward and forwards Red Berenson (the University of Michigan's hockey coach) and Jimmy Carson have also been added to the game's roster.

Polonich had a storied career, and there's plenty of quotes on the official website, as well as some stories about his high-profile career in Detroit. He notes that it's a huge honor to be playing in the game with some of the names that have already been announced, and it's very clear to see that he's truly happy to come back and put on the Red Wings' colors once again.
