Owner says Detroit Red Wings probably will play at Joe Louis Arena next season

DETROIT - Detroit Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch says the team will probably play at Joe Louis Arena again next season.

Ilitch was at the storied venue Monday with his wife, Marian, for the annual team picture. He told The Associated Press that "we'll probably end up here."

Joe Louis Arena opened in 1979. The Red Wings' building lease expires at the end of the NHL season.

The Red Wings have been contemplating whether to build a new arena or move at least temporarily to The Palace of Auburn Hills, the home of the NBA's Detroit Pistons.
