DETROIT -- The final round of voting in the Red Wings’ Operation: Bobblehead gets underway later today, with three current members of the team set to battle it out for the chance to be immortalized in the form of a collectable 6½ inch polyresin figurine. By virtue of their having finished amongst the Top 3 in last week’s vote, Hockeytown fan favorites Todd Bertuzzi, Justin Abdelkader and Niklas Kronwall are all on the final ballot and will now go head-to-head-to-head for the next six days with the player receiving the most votes between now and Monday, August 29 set to join teammates Pavel Datsyuk (Oct. 13), Henrik Zetterberg (Nov. 3), Johan Franzen (Dec. 8), Daniel Cleary (Jan. 12) and Nicklas Lidstrom (Apr. 5) as players to be featured in the Red Wings’ season-long Bobblehead Thursday promotion.

Fans are invited to cast their ballots online at and all this week to determine the victor in the final round of Operation: Bobblehead voting. The winner of this week’s vote will have their likeness emblazoned upon the bobblehead set to be handed out to the first 7,500 fans in attendance for the Red Wings’ February 23 showdown with the Western Conference champion Vancouver Canucks.
