Detroit Red Wings Jonas Gustavsson and Darren Helm met with fans and autographed photos and memorabilia Friday in Farmington Hills, as part of a friendly competition to boost Salvation Army Kettle Drive donations.
The Wings stood in the entry at Kroger, 11 Mile and Middlebelt Roads from shortly after 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. For each autograph, fans tucked $10 into the store's red kettle.
The players and Red Wings staff competed in teams at a number of metro Detroit locations to earn bragging rights for the most money raised on Dec. 13. The Salvation Army's red kettles will also be posted for an hour and a half before the puck drop at Joe Louis Arena, for Red Wings games on Dec. 14, 17, 19 and 23.
