Wings to sell Feb. 12th game jerseys with commemorative Lokomotiv patch
February 12th game commemorative Lokomotiv jersey tag.

DETROIT – The Red Wings have worn a special patch on their jerseys throughout the 2011-12 season in honor of three former Wings who were members of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey team (KHL) who died tragically in a plane crash this past September in Russia. The Wings announced today plans to sell the team’s white game-worn jerseys from this Sunday’s home game, Feb. 12, to raise money for the families of the three former Wings lost in the Lokomotiv tragedy.

Recognized on the patch are the initials of Brad McCrimmon, the Red Wings assistant coach from 2008-2011 and Wings defenseman from 1990-1993; Ruslan Salei, Wings defenseman last season; and Stefan Liv, who was drafted by the Wings in 2000 and was a goaltending prospect from 2000-2007. The patch contains the initials BM*RS*SL in red letters along with a blue stripe. Red and blue are the Lokomotiv team colors.

Each jersey contains a uniquely numbered tag imprinted on the inside, guaranteeing that the jersey is a part of the Wings set worn by the club on Feb. 12 and that game only. The tag includes the phrase “Love for Lokomotiv” and a barcode so that the jersey can be tracked. Each jersey remains without an autograph but can be autographed and personalized by the individual player if requested by the purchaser. All purchasers will also receive an 8x10 photograph from the Feb. 12, 2012, game vs. Philadelphia depicting the jersey being worn.

Earlier this season, the team sold its set of red jerseys worn during the season-opener on Oct. 7, 2011, bringing in $15,300 for the families of the three former Wings. The white jerseys worn during this Sunday’s game will be available for purchase starting at 10 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 13.

The jerseys are only available directly through the Red Wings merchandise department. For individual pricing and availability, fans should contact Christi Forgacs, merchandise authentics supervisor, at or 313-396-7583.
