The center-ice / center-court overhead scoreboard at the new Little Caesars Arena will measure approximately 5,100 square feet and will be the largest scoreboard in the NHL by viewable area, the Red Wings say.

Each of the four sides of the scoreboard, made by Daktronics, will measure approximately 28 feet high by 43.5 feet wide. A seamless display connects all four sides at the corners.

The Red Wings announced details of the scoreboard on Monday.

“Little Caesars Arena will give fans the best entertainment experience available, including this incredible scoreboard and display system from Daktronics,” said Tom Wilson, president and CEO of Olympia Entertainment.

The scoreboard also has four under-mount displays, which will be seen primarily by fans sitting closer to the ice or court.

The first Red Wings game at Little Caesars Arena is a preseason contest between Detroit and Boston on Saturday, Sept. 23 at 7 p.m.

The first regular-season game at LCA is against Minnesota on Thursday, Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m.
