Calgary Flames will honor Brad McCrimmon before Red Wings game on Tuesday

This is very, very cool, per the Flames’ website

Prior to their game against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night, the Calgary Flames will pay tribute to former Flames defenceman Brad McCrimmon.

McCrimmon was one of the 43 victims on board the Russian plane carrying the Kontinental Hockey League team Lokomotiv Yaroslavl that crashed on Sept. 7, 2010.

During warm-ups, Flames players will don jerseys sporting McCrimmon’s number four and name on the back. Their respective numbers will be displayed on the arms of the jersey. The jerseys will be autographed and auctioned off after the game with the proceeds going to the Flames Foundation for Life.

A custom tribute logo - 4 Brad - has been created and will be present on all materials connected with the tribute. Stickers with the logo will be on Flames players helmets tomorrow night.

Love For Lokotmotiv bracelets will also be for sale at FanAttic.

Continued, and I believe the Flyers might do something similar when they retire Mark Howe’s #2 when the Wings come to town in February…

This.  R.I.P., beast.
I can still recall him lifting that grail while I bounced off the ceiling.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
