Winter Classic 2013: Preliminary Alumni Game Rosters To Be Announced Wednesday

The Detroit Red Wings are very excited to be taking part in the 2013 Winter Classic and have scheduled a press conference to announce a few details regarding many of the attractions and festivities that will be going on alongside the actual game. One of those attractions is the Alumni Game - the 2012 iteration of which drew 45,000 fans.

According to Helene St. James on Twitter, the Red Wings will have a press conference on Wednesday to announce a number of things, most notably the Alumni Game's preliminary rosters. Not much is known off-hand, but it was already mentioned months ago that Steve Yzerman would likely not be playing in the game, which is unfortunate. That being said, it should be a very fun game with two very storied franchises having a plethora of players to pick from.

Ansar Khan followed up on the press conference on Twitter, saying that it will be at 12:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Comerica Park. He also mentioned the Alumni Game, lending more to the belief that the press conference will mostly focus on that announcement, though there should be other things of note as well.
