Fans will be able to see many of their favorite Detroit Red Wings in action in a charity game on Dec. 8.

The NHL Players Association has organized a game for charity on Dec. 8. Detroit Red Wings forward Danny Cleary has helped with the planning, along with Steve Ott of the Buffalo Sabres and Shawn Horcoff of the Edmonton Oilers. According to Ansar Khan, the game will take place at the WFCU Center in Windsor, and will benefit local charities. Khan also points out that the game can only take place if the NHL does not have a new collective bargaining agreement in place.

Cleary has gotten several other Red Wings to tentatively commit. They include Niklas Kronwall, Jonathan Ericsson, Ian White, Darren Helm, Todd Bertuzzi, Justin Abdelkader, Cory Emmerton, Jimmy Howard, and Jonas Gustavsson. In addition, James Neal of Pittsburgh, Brenden Morrow of Dallas, Keith Yandle of Phoenix, Jamal Mayers of Chicago, Eric Belanger of Edmonton, Ryan Wilson of Colorado, and former NHL player Sergei Samsonov are all expected to play.

The NHLPA will release ticket information later this week.
