-- Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg
will distribute more than 2,000 smoke detectors to local fire departments at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, January 9 at Joe Louis Arena. He serves as the Red Wings' spokesman for the team’s annual smoke detector collection, which provides life-saving detectors to low income families throughout metro Detroit.

Zetterberg will meet with representatives from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives (ATF), The State of Michigan Fire Marshals Office and members of various fire departments following practice to donate the detectors to residents who are unable to afford the devices for their own homes. The fire departments will assist in distributing the detectors in homes throughout the area.WHO:
