DETROIT (AP) -The Swedes are excited to watch some of their countrymen open the NHL season in Stockholm,

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said Wednesday that tickets for their season-opening games against the St. Louis Blues sold out in less than an hour.

Detroit, which features stars from Sweden such as Nicklas Lidstrom and Henrik Zetterberg, will begin the 2009-10 season on Oct. 2-3 in Stockholm against St. Louis.

The NHL announced earlier the matchup earlier this month and also said the Chicago Blackhawks would face the Florida Panthers on the same dates in Helsinki.
