Flames Pay Tribute to Brad McCrimmon Tonight

The Calgary Flames will salute the late Brad McCrimmon prior to tonight's home game against Detroit.

Included in the tribute will be Flames' players donning jerseys sporting McCrimmon's #4 and name during warm-ups.

The jerseys will be autographed and auctioned off after the game with the proceeds going to the Flames Foundation for Life.

McCrimmon was a member of Calgary's 1989 Stanley Cup team and is a former assistant coach with the Flames.

He was among the victims on board the Russian plane carrying the KHL team Lokomotiv Yaroslavl that crashed last September.

Wheat Kings' owner and GM Kelly McCrimmon will be in attendance for tonight's pre-game ceremony in Calgary.
