Detroit, MI... Some of the most popular players in the recent history of the Detroit Red Wings will be giving local hockey enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the coming weeks. The formidable foursome of Darren McCarty, Kirk Maltby, Kris Draper and Joe Kocur has reunited to present the ‘Grind Line 4-on-4 Fantasy Challenge’ at Joe Louis Arena.
Beginning today and lasting until availability is exhausted, teams comprised of nine (9) skaters and one (1) goaltender can purchase a special package providing participants with the chance to take on a squad featuring all four Grind Line members as well as several special guests from the Red Wings Alumni Association. All players competing must be at least 21 years of age. A total of six (6) matches will be held at JLA on the dates below (game times TBD):

NOTE: Additional dates/times may be added.
In addition to enjoying one full hour (two 30-minute periods) of ice time at The Joe and getting to compete against former professional players who have a minimum of 14 Stanley Cup rings between them, fans who purchase a Grind Line Fantasy Challenge package will receive a professionally-produced DVD copy of their experience. Challenge participants will also prepare for their game in an NHL locker room, wear an official Red Wings practice jersey and enjoy post-game refreshments with their opponents. All competitors will also receive a commemorative 8X10 team photograph, taken pre-game at center ice alongside the Hockeytown heroes they’ll be battling in four-on-four action.

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.
