The Wheel Deal

Niklas Kronwall has experienced the loss of a loved one at an early age, which basically makes him an authority on the devastating affects of a despicable disease like breast cancer.

While the Red Wings defenseman is thankful that nobody in his immediate family has been inflicted with the disease, he hopes that a cure can be found before it does strike close to home.

“Obviously, it’s a big thing out there, and the more that we can do to research, the better it is,” Kronwall said. “It’s terrible and hopefully at some point in time we’ll be able to find a cure for it. Who knows how long that will be, but it’s going to take a lot of money and a lot of effort from a lot of people.”

The Wings plan to contribute to the fight against cancer tonight when they host their fifth annual Breast Cancer Awareness Night at Joe Louis Arena. The event is in conjunction with the NHL’s month-long Hockey Fights Cancer initiative.

The Wings have plenty of fund-raising activities planned, including a silent auction, puck draw, 50/50 raffle and a special sale on pink knit hats with all of the proceeds benefiting the Liggett Breast Cancer Center in Grosse Pointe Woods, as well as the Weisberg Cancer Treatment Center in Farmington Hills.

During tonight’s pregame warm-ups, Wings’ players will use sticks wrapped with pink hockey tape. These sticks will then be autographed and auctioned on the JLA concourse during tonight’s game.

Fans that wear pink to tonight’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets will be entered into a drawing where the winner will receive a team-signed jersey.
