Source: Wings open regular season Oct. 12 at home against the Nashville Predators

DETROIT — If unrestricted free agent defenseman Ryan Suter does become a Red Wing once free agency begins July 1, his first regular season game will be against his former team.

According to a source, the Wings will open the regular season at Joe Louis Arena on Oct. 12 against the Nashville Predators.

“Unless something changes in the hear future, he’s going to take a peek at July 1,” GM David Poile told The Tennessean. “We’re going to be in consistent contact with him, and I’m certainly hoping, as he said to me a week ago, that he’s not going to make a sudden decision … and we’re going to have some conversations after he has talked to these different teams.”
