Northville resident Jiri Fischer, Detroit Red Wings Assembly Team bring hockey and fitness lesson to Smith Elementary students in Plymouth.
A sea of red shirts flooded the Smith Elementary gymnasium in Plymouth on Thursday as former Detroit Red Wing Jiri Fischer and the Red Wings Assembly Team introduced students to the sport of hockey and encouraged an active and healthy lifestyle. The message of maintaining health hits home for Fischer, who survived his own health scare in 2005 when he suffered cardiac arrest and collapsed on the bench during a game against the Nashville Predators. The incident ended Fischer's playing career and he said he uses his experience to teach others to not take things for granted.

Focus schools are designated by the state as schools with wide achievement gaps on the Michigan Merit Exam between the top and bottom 30 percent of students.

Plymouth players report to training camp and to PCEP next week.
When the Plymouth Whalers open training camp next week to start the 2012-13 season, the team’s Most Valuable Person may not be a player, a coach or trainer.
