Red Wings forward Danny Cleary, poster boy

Update: Alanah found the art in question on James Long’s website: According to the Canadian Press, many school-age children in Newfoundland and Labrador will quite literally look to Red Wings forward Danny Cleary for inspiration:

NHL player Danny Cleary is being held up as a role model for school children in his home province of Newfoundland and Labrador in a work of art. The government is providing every school with a framed limited-edition reproduction of a print of the local hockey hero, who has won the Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings. The work is by artist James Long and it’s titled “Believe in Yourself.”

The provincial government says the poster intended to inspire students to set high goals and pursue their own dreams and aspirations. Schools from kindergarten to Grade 12 are being asked to display the Cleary print in a prominent place.

The 32-year-old forward is a native of Harbour Grace and the first person from Newfoundland and Labrador to win the Stanley Cup.

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.
