One dream just came true in Holland, Michigan. West Michigan native, Luke Witkowski won a spot on the legendary team of NHL’s Detroit Red Wings.
“He signed with Detroit on July 1, a two-year deal worth $750,000, after spending the last three seasons with the Tampa Bay Lightning.”
Back to Where It All Began
It was always Witokowski’s dream to end up back in Michigan playing hockey for his home state’s team. While players can flock from all over the country as well as outside of the U.S. it’s particularly special when a player can bring home state pride to a team. As one of the original National Hockey League teams, here’s hoping Luke Witkowski can bring some of Red Wing’s former glory back to the state and secure Michigan a Stanley cup in the future.
