The Detroit Red Wings annual development camp is meant to teach players what it takes to be a pro hockey player, not to evaluate them in July when many haven’t been on the ice in weeks or months. But you can bet the players want to make the strongest possible impression even if they aren’t being judged. Doing anything else would be squandering a great opportunity. Michigan State defenseman Mitch Eliot went to the development camp with that in mind.

Dating back to 2007, many of MSU’s programs have reached the postseason, and three of the big-name programs boast at least one Final Four (men’s basketball, football and hockey). The 2007 hockey team and the 2014 women’s cross country teams brought national titles back to East Lansing.

When Michigan State fans think about rivalries, the first thing opponent that likely comes to mind is Michigan. But this year, MSU will see plenty of Notre Dame in several different sports. Last week, it was announced the Spartans would host the Irish in this year’s ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The Irish are also on the schedule for football and are the newest team to join the Big Ten hockey conference. Hosting the Irish in three separate sports feels almost like an in-conference rivalry despite not facing off in a number of years. This season will rekindle the rivalry that was in the national spotlight when the two football programs played the 1966 “Game of the Century.”
