Update: The Wings' gear auction to benefit breast cancer-related charities is still up and running on NHL.com, too.

The Detroit Red Wings will battle Daniel Alfredson's previous employer minus #11's services this evening (7 PM, FSD/CBC/1270 AM), and this press release from a few days ago is more than worth repeating:

Wings to collect winter gear for homeless

Fans who donate can win a Franzen autographed puck and photo at the Nov. 23 game

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings and the DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital are asking fans to bring new or gently-used cold weather wear to the home game on Saturday, Nov. 23, as part of the 20th annual Motor City Mitten Madness (MCMM) program.

Volunteers from the DRH Burn Center will collect adult and children’s winter clothing wear and monetary donations at each of the four entrances of Joe Louis Arena to make this holiday season a little warmer for Detroit homeless shelters.

For every item donated or a monetary donation, fans will have the opportunity to win a Johan Franzen autographed puck and photo. One winner will be announced at the game and fans must be present to win.

Fans are encouraged to bring clean, new or gently-used winter clothing articles such as gloves, mittens, scarves, socks, hats and blankets. All items collected on Nov. 23 will be distributed to Detroit area shelters to help prevent frostbite among the homeless, who are especially at risk of this preventable injury.

WHO: Detroit Red Wings and DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital Burn Center

WHAT: 20th Annual Motor City Mitten Madness

WHERE: Each of the Four Entrances to Joe Louis Arena

WHEN: Saturday, Nov. 23, vs. Ottawa at 7:00 p.m.

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.
