Abel to Yzerman

Bob Duff has broken a big one, that single story every reporter waits for.
“I’m a big Shreddies guy.”
The move back to Detroit, the team that originally drafted Drake back in 1989, put him within eyesight of the Canadian border and in close proximity to Shreddies.
“It just became a lot easier to get them,” Drake said, joking he’d had a Shreddies clause written into his pact. “That was the only contract bonus I got.”
The rest of the story mentions a few other (former) Wings and the items they’d have imported from home. I don’t know if Duff had a straight face when he wrote this about Bob Probert.
Probert, who spent his entire 17-season NHL career in the United States playing for the Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks, was another player who delighted in care packages of Canadian products.
