Autograph sessions will be held throughout the day with past and present members of the Red Wings. Fans will also have a chance to play alongside and interact with their favorite current players at various interactive games and pick-up hockey stations on the covered ice and around the concourse of The Joe. This year’s HockeyFest will also feature exclusive tours of the Red Wings’ locker room, additional Q&A sessions with players, staff and alumni, photo opportunities with the 1997, 1998, 2002 and 2008 Stanley Cup banners, a historical memorabilia exhibit including NHL trophies, and contests and prizes galore for fans in attendance.
Red Wings Alumni Joe Kocur and Darren McCarty will celebrate the life of Bob Probert during a Q&A session at this year’s HockeyFest, as this summer marked the five year anniversary of his passing. Probert’s wife, Dani, will also join the Q&A session to bring together three of the people who knew Probert best and share some of his memories playing for the Red Wings. Additionally, artist David Arrigo will be on hand at HockeyFest to paint a special Bob Probert goalie mask. The one-of-a-kind mask will be part of a silent auction at HockeyFest with all proceeds benefitting the Bob Probert Memorial Ride and their support of local cardiac care.
