Ferris Hockey Players Get Pro Experience In T.C.

Posted: Updated:

TRAVERSE CITY - It's always good to have connections.

Jeff Blashill, a former goalie and assistant coach for Ferris State, is now the minor league Head Coach for the Red Wings.

When Detroit needed a couple of extra defensemen for their development camp scrimmage this weekend, Blashill made a call to his old stomping grounds.

So Friday night, Ferris State Bulldogs Simon Denis and Jason Binkley got an awesome experience, donning the famed winged wheel.

To keep their amatuer status, the juniors had to pay for it themselves, but whatever price that was appeared to be totally worth it.
