Detroit Red Wings 1982 Training Camp Roster

1982 Training Camp Notes
Training camp in 1982 was the beginning of a new era for hockey in Detroit as new owner Mike Ilitch and GM Jimmy Devellano shook things up. Lots of new faces were brought in, and for several others, this would be their last camp in the wings organization. Veterans Stan Weir, Colin Campbell, Reggie Leach, Tom Rowe, and Jim Rutherford were brought in to stabilize things while the kids got seasoning. Sixty-five players were invited to the main camp, made up of 7 goaltenders, 17 defenseman and 41 forwards. Players were split between the parent club and two minor league affiliates, Adirondack (AHL), and Kalamazoo (IHL).
