DETROIT – The Red Wings are planning a special promotion this month to highlight high school hockey in the state of Michigan.

To kick off the high school season, teams, friends, family and fans can vote on which of the four nominated high school match-ups will take part in this exciting and memorable event.

The match-up that garners the most votes will be covered by the Red Wings, who will produce a segment featuring highlights, analysis and interviews of both schools.

Two of the games feature a pair of the state’s top ranked squads with Detroit Country Day (No. 4 in Division 3) taking on Utica Eisenhower, and Livonia Stevenson (No. 1 in Division 2) in a rematch against Kensington Lakes rival South Lyon.

Of the eight teams, Eisenhower advanced the furthest in last spring’s state tournament, reaching the Division 1 quarterfinals before dropping a 4-1 decision to Orchard Lake St. Mary’s.

The other two games involve an Oakland Activities Association battle between Oxford and Lake Orion, as well as a matchup of northern schools – Cadillac and Big Rapids – in a Hockeytown showdown.
