Fans invited to vote on bobbleheads
In order to view this page you need JavaScript and Flash Player 9+ support!
DETROIT -- The 11-time Stanley Cup champion Red Wings will be distributing bobblehead figurines depicting current members of the team to the first 7,500 fans in attendance at Joe Louis Arena at every Thursday night home game during the upcoming 2011-12 NHL season. Furthermore, a select number of Specially-Marked Bobbleheads will be handed out at every Thursday night game, with the lucky JLA patrons obtaining these exclusive items set to win additional prizes such as a one-of-a-kind Red Wings fan experience involving a post-game player meet-and-greet.
 
As part of ‘Operation: Bobblehead’, four of the six players to be featured in this special giveaway promotion will be determined by an impending multi-week online voting campaign, which will be conducted simultaneously at DetroitRedWings.com as well as via the club’s official Facebook page and on the Red Wings TV video portal.
 
“We always look for the best items possible to present to our fans,” said Tom Wilson, president of Olympia Entertainment. “Remarkably, it always comes down to bobbleheads being the souvenir that most fans want, and want to keep and display. It’s a great memory of a great time at The Joe. The difference this year is that the fans will tell us who they want portrayed on the bobbles – so we are in this together.”
 
Compliments of AT&T, the exclusive communications partner of the Detroit Red Wings and Joe Louis Arena, the first bobblehead to be distributed as part of this special season-long series will depict veteran playmaker Pavel Datsyuk. Datsyuk’s bobblehead will be handed out to arena spectators on October 13 prior to Detroit’s matchup with the Western Conference champion Vancouver Canucks. The likeness of team captain and seven-time Norris Trophy recipient Nicklas Lidstrom, who recently announced that he will be returning to Detroit for his 20th NHL season, will adorn the final bobblehead given away – on April 5 vs. New Jersey.
 
Every active member of the Red Wings’ roster will be eligible to have their image emblazoned upon a 6 ½ inch polyresin figurine for the remaining four bobblehead giveaway nights. The ‘Operation: Bobblehead’ campaign begins on Thursday, July 28 at one minute past noon. Voting will be conducted on a week-by-week basis and will close at noon every Thursday. The following day (Friday) at 12:01 p.m. EDT, voting will begin anew; no ballots cast the previous week will count towards each player’s total. There is no limit on how many votes fans are able to cast throughout the duration of this campaign.
