According to Red Wings superfan Nick Horvath, when he was escorted out of opening night at Little Caesars Arena last Thursday night, security guards told him he was banned for life for throwing an Octopus on the ice.
If you didn't know, this has been a thing with the Wings for quite some time now, dating back to the 50s where the eight tentacles of the Octopus symbolized the eight wins (at the time) it took to win the Stanley Cup.
However, a spokesperson for the Red Wings today said that the man was NOT banned for life, just merely ticketed, and then released. Are they just trying to save face? Or did mr Horvath embellish a little perhaps?
