Players\' wives and girlfriends to host puck draw
DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings’ wives and girlfriends will hold a mystery puck draw on the concourse at this Sunday’s home game (March 4) against the Chicago Blackhawks. When doors open at 2:30 p.m., fans are encouraged to visit the puck draw tables on the concourse behind Section 126.

Fans have the opportunity to purchase a select puck from an assortment of 300 hockey pucks signed by members of the 2011-12 team. Pucks cost $25 apiece and must be paid for by cash or check. Each puck has been signed by a Red Wings player and packaged in a black box to conceal the autograph. The fan who opens the box with a puck signed in gold by Niklas Kronwall will meet the Wings’ defenseman after the game. Each puck comes with a certificate of authenticity.

The proceeds of Sunday’s puck draw will benefit the family of former Red Wings player and assistant coach Brad McCrimmon, who tragically passed away in a plane crash on Sept. 7, 2011, along with the rest of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey team (KHL). The Red Wings have worn a special red and blue patch on their jerseys throughout the 2011-12 season in honor of the three former Red Wings who were on the plane: McCrimmon, defenseman Ruslan Salei and goaltending prospect Stefan Liv.

The team has raised more than $14,000 for the Love for Lokomotiv initiative through the sale of red ‘Love for Lokomotiv’ wristbands this season. The Wings have also collected over $54,000 for the families of the three former Red Wings by selling game-worn jerseys from opening night as well as the game on Feb. 12.
