Joe Louis Arena may be closed, but fans can still cop a cool souvenir from the former home of the Detroit Red Wings.

The Red Wings are selling limited-edition vials of melted ice from 'The Joe,' with proceeds of the sales benefitting the Detroit Red Wings Foundation's mission to grow hockey.

"The Detroit Red Wings Foundation is thrilled to offer a unique opportunity for fans to support our cause while honoring the history of Joe Louis Arena," director of community relations and the Detroit Red Wings Foundation Kevin Brown said. "These commemorative ice vials serve as a wonderful keepsake, capturing the essence of [Joe Louis Arena's] electrifying farewell."

Each vial will come inside an individually numbered 6x8 inch shadowbox frame photo of Joe Louis Arena and will cost $85, including shipping. Only 3,000 vials are available.

Detroit played its home games at Joe Louis Arena for 37 seasons before closing it with a 4-1 win against the New Jersey Devils on April 9. The Red Wings will play their first preseason game at Little Caesars Arena, their new home, against the Boston Bruins on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; NHLN, FS-D+).
