Forward Alex DeBrincat has returned to his native state of Michigan, having been acquired by the Detroit Red Wings over the summer by the Ottawa Senators and signing a four-year contract. Needless to say, he relishes playing in front of his hometown fans who consistently fill Little Caesars Arena night after night, and was appreciative of the Red Wings fans who made the journey to Toronto for the 2024 NHL All-Star Game.

It was during the offseason that DeBrincat was acquired by the Red Wings to fulfill a major need, which was goal-scoring. Detroit brought him in from Ottawa in exchange for Dominik Kubalik, prospect defenceman Donovan Sebrango, a conditional 2024 first-round draft pick, and Detroit's fourth-round selection in 2024.

Through his first 50 games played in the Winged Wheel, DeBrincat has 43 points (18G, 25A) and is on pace to reach 71 points.

Not only is DeBrincat appreciative of the Red Wings fans who made the trip to represent their team in Toronto, but those who spend their money to watch the Red Wings play at Little Caesars Arena.

“It's been great, I think that the crowds have been awesome,” DeBrincat said. “They've been really loud, and even having the Lions buzz was really bringing the whole city together and kind of rallying around the sports team was awesome. That kind of filtered into our games, too. It's definitely cool to see fans on the red carpet and to interact with them has been awesome.”
