Red Wings add 4 players from 'Russian 5' to participate in Winter Classic alumni festivities

DETROIT - Four players from Detroit's "Russian Five" will be on hand when Red Wings alumni take on alumni from the Toronto Maple Leafs the day before the Winter Classic.

Viacheslav Fetisov, Igor Larionov, Vladimir Konstantinov and Sergei Fedorov will participate in the festivities Dec. 31 at Comerica Park in Detroit. The next day, the current Red Wings and Maple Leafs are scheduled to play at Michigan Stadium.

Gary Leeman, Russ Courtnall, Bill Derlago, Bob McGill, Vincent Damphousse and Dave Ellett are joining the alumni day representing the Maple Leafs.

Quote of the Day

One player does not make your team. One player can help your team, but one player does not make your team. We're not a bare-bones organization.
