The Detroit Red Wings will be featured on the newest season of HBO's 24/7. For more on the Red Wings, go to Winging It In Motown.

If you were wondering whether or not you were going to see any more of HBO's "24/7" program for the next NHL season, we've got some good news. Greg Wyshynski reports that the series is returning for a third season and will feature the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs in the lead up to the NHL Winter Classic:

After two seasons that changed the way fans see the National Hockey League and its players, NHL COO John Collins confirmed that there will be a Season 3 for "HBO 24/7: Road To The NHL Winter Classic" featuring the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

As the piece notes, the series almost didn't get renewed for a third season. There were some big changes at the top of HBO Sports, as former president Ross Greenberg left the network to start up his own production company working with NBC Sports and the NHL Network.

It looks like the NHL is going to work closer with HBO on the production for the third season so it will be interesting to see what kind of changes there are going to be. There's also word of a Canadian network partner for the third season, though that's still awaiting confirmation and official announcement.
