ALUMNI AUTOGRAPHS

There will be three (3) alumni autograph booths located around the Coke Zero Fan Zone from Dec. 27-30.  
Locations:

-    Molson Hockey House
-    Coke Zero Detroit Red Wings Experience Tent
-    Hockey Hall of Fame Tent

Alumni autographs will be free for all guests within the Coke Zero Fan Zone. Autograph sessions with Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs alumni will each be 1½ hours in length.  Sessions will run throughout the event from Dec. 27-30.  In order to accommodate as many autograph requests as possible, guests will be asked to please adhere to the following guidelines:
  1. Autograph lines are on a first come, first served basis.  As such, Coke Zero Fan Zone guests are not guaranteed an alumni autograph when they step in line or with the purchase of their ticket. 
  2. The lines will begin at the autograph booths and run through the stanchioned areas.
  3. Once a line reaches capacity within the tent, guests will be directed to wait in a second line outside of each tent.  If an autograph line reaches maximum capacity in all specified areas, the line will be temporarily closed for fan safety.  When this occurs, fans will be directed to other Coke Zero Fan Zone activities throughout the two parking lots.  Reopening of closed autograph lines will resume when instructed by Coke Zero Fan Zone personnel. The line will then resume movement as normal.
  4. Each autograph booth will have at least one Detroit Red Wings or Toronto Maple Leafs alumnus.
  5. To ensure the most signatures for our fans, we ask that you only bring one (1) item to be signed per person.  We ask that you please have your selected item ready for a signature, as your cooperation will expedite the flow of fans through each autograph session.
  6. No posed photographs will be allowed.
  7. Alumni autograph schedules will not be announced in advance.
  8. Fans who may need special assistance to participate in the autograph line process should ask a guest relations manager or autograph volunteer for assistance.

Note: There will not be any alumni autograph sessions on Tuesday, December 31st.
