DETROIT >> Landon Ferraro made his NHL debut Tuesday and his dad, Ray, gave him some fatherly advice.
“He said just try and take everything in,” Landon said. “He says he doesn’t remember a thing from his first game and he’s disappointed that he doesn’t so he said you know as much as you’re going to be focused and everything like that, just take a look around and notice everything going on and try and remember it.”
Ray was on hand to witness his son’s first game in a Wings sweater.
“I grew up loving the Leafs and I always had to try and go against my dad about it,” said Landon, whose favorite Maple Leaf was Mats Sundin. “This is the best thing that could’ve worked out. For me the biggest thing is this is where my dad played his last game in the ‘02 playoffs when Detroit beat St. Louis so it will be pretty cool his last game, my first game in the same building.”
Landon replaced Teemu Pulkkinen in the lineup.
