The ECHL's Toledo Walleye are going the distance with their uniforms for "Rocky" tribute night on Saturday.

The Detroit Red Wings affiliate will wear special Rocky Balboa-themed uniforms, complete with a faux-bare-chested jersey that includes a championship belt and pants that resemble the stars-and-stripes trunks worn by Sylvester Stallone in the 1976 movie, for their game against the Brampton Beast.

The socks will even feature laces that mimic Balboa's high-top boxing shoes. The jerseys and pants will be auctioned off after the game, with proceeds benefitting Toledo-based nonprofit organization Heroes in Action, the International Boxing Club of Toledo and the Walleye Wishing Well.
