There was much more game-day media than usually in the Red Wings’ dressing room Monday morning. And it wasn’t because the Miller brothers are slated to play against one another for the first time in two years.

No, the bevy of cameras and boom microphones descended on Hockeytown to follow captain Nicklas Lidstrom, who is slated to be the subject of any upcoming episode of the NHL’s all-access series called ‘NHL 36’.

For the next two days, the production crew has exclusive access to Lidstrom, driving to and from Joe Louis Arena with the seven-time Norris Trophy winner and spending time with him and his family at their Northville home. The crew will even be onboard Red Bird III later this evening when the team travels to Dallas its Tuesday night game against the Stars.

Filming began early Monday as Lidstrom prepared to drive down I-96 to the morning skate at JLA. While the skate was optional, the crew got plenty of footage of Lidstrom as he opted to ride a stationary bike instead.

Asked if the cameraman joined him for a bike ride, Lidstrom laughed, saying, “No, he wouldn’t. There were a lot of bikes free, a lot available, but he wouldn’t jump on.”

The crew did jump in team meetings and will give viewers an unprecedented view of the team as they discuss strategy and prepare for an opponent.

“They were in a lot of our meetings, they were in our penalty killing meeting just to see what that’s like,” Lidstrom said. “It just started this morning so we haven’t done a whole lot, but it’s different. It’s different having someone follow you the whole time no matter what you do, whether you’re in here, or like today I rode a bike instead of going on the ice. I did some stretching and we had our meeting, so it’s just a matter of getting used to it.”

Lidstrom is the third player to have the peering eyes of NHL Original Productions flowing his every move. The production crew has already filmed Chicago’s Patrick Kane and Boston’s Patrice Bergeron.

The Lidstrom episode will air on the NBC Sports Network on Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 6:30 p.m. EST. It will re-air multiple times, including Jan. 26 (5:30 p.m.), Jan. 27 (9 a.m.) and Jan. 29 (7:30 p.m.).
