Al Sabotka is a Red Wings’ lifer. Come the official opening of the 2017-18 hockey season, he will be manning the Zamboni at the newly-minted Little Caesars Arena.
Sabotka is already one of a very select few that will have been a part of the everyday duties at all three venues for the Detroit Red Wings, going back to their time at Olympia Stadium. The building operations manager for Olympia Entertainment also really enjoys being behind the wheel of the Zamboni.
And sometimes, he likes to just take it for a stroll out in Detroit. Tuesday morning, for example, Sabotka was spotted driving it down Woodward Avenue for reasons unknown.
