CALGARY, AB – The Calgary Flames will honoured former Flames captain, assistant coach and Stanley Cup champion Brad McCrimmon with a tribute ceremony that took place prior to the Flames versus Detroit Red Wings game on Tuesday.
The pre-game ceremony featured a video tribute to McCrimmon as well as an on-ice presentation.
Following the tribute video, everyone in attendance was asked to observe a “moment of applause” in lieu of the traditional “moment of silence” to acknowledge his contributions to the sport of hockey.
A tribute logo has been created “4 Brad” which was displayed on the Flames players helmets during the game and commemorative McCrimmon jerseys were worn by the Flames players during the pre-game warm-up and will be auctioned off on NHL.com auctions with benefits going to “Love4Lokomotiv”.
The auction will open shortly. Stay posted to calgaryflames.com in the coming days for further information.
