Probert to play in Showdown
Probert, who compiled more than 3,000 penalty-minutes during 16 seasons, makes his return to The Joe on Saturday. He last played in a Wings uniform in 1994.
DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings Alumni Association is pleased to welcome former Red Wings' enforcer Bob Probert for tonight's third annual Showdown in Hockeytown against the Boston Bruins alumni at Joe Louis Arena.

A fan favorite for years, Probert, who amassed 3,300 penalty-minutes during 16 seasons, will join other former Red Wings' greats, like Dino Ciccarelli, Ron Duguay, Gerard Gallant, Mickey Redmond and many more in an Original Six clash with the Bruins from Beantown. Game time is 7 p.m.

Special autographed sticks, used by the players in this game, can be purchased during the first and second intermissions. Everyone in attendance will also have an opportunity to win a jersey off one of the former Red Wings' backs, and have it signed by the player.

A big, bruising Red Wings' enforcer during his nine seasons in Detroit, Probert electrified fans with an on-ice toughness and a willingness to defend teammates that was second to none, which arguably made him the toughest fighter in NHL history. Still, he was more than a tough guy, as he proved in 1988 when he joined Red Wings' teammate Steve Yzerman at the All-Star Game in St. Louis.

Probert last suited up for the Red Wings in Game 7 of the Western Conference quarterfinals against the San Jose Sharks on April 30, 1994. During his tenure in Hockeytown, Probert scored 114 goals with 145 assists and 2,090 penalty-minutes in 474 regular-season games. He finished his career by playing seven seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Former Wings forward Ron Duguay will be in town for the third annual game against an Original Six opponent
Prior to the puck drop get autographs from all participating players and coaches at the 3 p.m. autograph session. Tickets are just $10 for upper bowl; $20 for lower bowl seating, and are on sale now.

The third annual Showdown in Hockeytown is presented by Datapak.
