DETROIT -- After 37 games this season, the Detroit Red Wings are off to their best start since 2016-17, and the club has enjoyed a tremendous home ice advantage, going 12-5-2 so far at Little Caesars Arena.

And to help create an even better home ice atmosphere down the stretch, the Red Wings are excited to announce theme nights, promotions and giveaways for the second half of the 2021-22 season.

As the most popular giveaway item every year, the Red Wings bobblehead series returns with an iconic theme.

This season's bobblehead series will pay homage to Detroit's infamous Grind Line, featuring Kris Draper (Jan. 13), Kirk Maltby (Jan. 31), Joe Kocur (March 22) and Darren McCarty (April 5) bobblehead giveaways to the first 7,500 fans in attendance for each respective night.

As part of the Red Wings' continued commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and the NHL's Hockey is for Everyone initiative, the organization will celebrate Black History Night on Feb. 23 against the Colorado Avalanche, and the Wings will host Women's History Night on March 8 against the Arizona Coyotes.

Activations during Black History Night and Women's History Night will include a celebration of 2022 Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Tigers Game Changers, presented by Comerica Bank, which is a program that honors local community leaders making a difference in the lives of children. Additionally, fans can experience new Red Wings exhibits exploring Black hockey history and women's hockey history on the Little Caesars Arena concourse throughout February and March.

The Red Wings will celebrate Kids Night on April 9 against the Columbus Blue Jackets, and as a nod to our friends across Woodward Avenue, the Wings are set to host Detroit Tigers Night on April 12 against the Ottawa Senators.

Kids Night includes a Growth Chart giveaway for the first 2,000 kids aged 12 and under in attendance, and Tigers Night features a Baseball Hat giveaway, presented by MotorCity Casino Hotel, for the first 7,500 fans at Little Caesars Arena.

Because of games that have been postponed, a confirmed date for Fan Appreciation Night, presented by Coca-Cola, will be announced upon the completion of the revised NHL schedule. Details surrounding Fan Appreciation Night will be communicated later this season.
