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.
The funds raised from these signings are designed to help defray the costs Konstantinov and his family will be incurring due to changes in the Michigan automobile insurance laws.
