If you’re still seeking out that unique holiday gift for the Red Wings fan in your life, it’s not too late to acquire an autographed item from former Detroit defenseman Vladimir Konstantinov.
Already, through signings held in conjunction with sportsgraphing.com, over $65,000 has been raised for the Vladimir Konstantinov Special Needs Trust to help defray the costs Konstantinov and his family will be incurring due to changes in the Michigan automobile insurance laws.

During his time performing with the Red Wings, Konstantinov was an NHL All-Star defenseman and a Norris Trophy finalist. He was passenger in a limousine crash just days after the Red Wings won the 1996-97 Stanley Cup title. The accident was leaving Konstantinov with debilitating brain injuries.
A public signing was held earlier this month at Pro Sports Zone in Livonia, Michigan but if you missed out on that one, there’s still an opportunity to pick up an item signed by Konstantinov and help out a worthy cause at the same time.
