The East Side Hockey Ice Arena in Grosse Pointe hosted a Try Hockey For Free event on Saturday during the nationwide celebration of the event. Red Wings forward Brendan Perlini dropped by to skate with the kids who were trying out the game for the very first time. Perlini is no stranger to the area, as he played two seasons in Metro Detroit with Dylan Larkin and Belle Tire before moving on to the junior ranks. Players from the boys and girls Grosse Pointe high school teams also volunteered to help out on the ice. (Photos by Stefan Kubus/MiHockey)
