The Wheel Deal

That did not take long at all.

In just one day, the Red Wings sold all 23 special commemorative jerseys that paid homage to their former teammates and coach that perished in tragic plane crash that killed all onboard, including every member of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey team last September in Russia.

The jerseys were those worn by the Red Wings in their Oct. 7 season-opening win over Ottawa at Joe Louis Arena. And Wings' fans stepped up by once again showing their incredible generosity and continued support for these families and the organization.

All 23 red jerseys in the set were sold out by Wednesday afternoon, raising more than $15,000 for the families of the former Wings.

Each jersey has an arm patch containing the initials BM*RS*SL in red letters along with a blue stripe. Red and blue are the Lokomotiv team colors. Recognized on the patch are the initials of Brad McCrimmon, an assistant coach from 2008-11 and defenseman from 1990-93; Ruslan Salei, a defenseman with Detroit last season; and goalie Stefan Liv, who was drafted by the Wings in 2000 and was a prospect until 2007.

Each jersey also contains a unique tag imprinted on the inside with game date and opponent as well as the words “Love For Lokomotiv”, guaranteeing that the jersey is a part of the Wings’ one-time opening night set. Each purchaser also received a photograph from the Oct. 7 depicting the player wearing the jersey.
