One of the few bright spots during Thursday’s 4-1 Detroit Red Wings loss to the Arizona Coyotes was arriving when former Wings star Vladimir Konstantinov was shown sitting in the owner’s box at Little Caesars Arena watching the game.

The sight of the Vladinator at any Red Wings game always leads to a thunderous ovation from the faithful. He was a Norris Trophy finalist and a key contributor to the club’s 1996-97 Stanley Cup win. Just days after that victory, Konstantinov would suffer debilitating brain injuries in a limousine crash.

Working with Alan Moore of, Konstantinov has been signing items. One hundred percent of the proceeds from selling of this autographed memorabilia go directly to the Vladimir Konstantinov Special Needs Trust Fund which supports #16. Resulting from the creation of this program is the raising of more than $100,000 to help defray costs that Konstantinov incurs.

Moore joined Kevin Allen and Bob Duff on this week’s Detroit Hockey Now podcast. They were discussing a couple of upcoming opportunities for Red Wings fans to meet up with Konstantinov and get items autographed by him.
