Fischer to make appearance in Saginaw

Former Detroit Red Wings defenseman and CHL alumnus Jiri Fischer will make a celebrity appearance at the Saginaw Spirit home game this Saturday when Spirit take on the Plymouth Whalers at 7:11 p.m. at TheDow Event Center in Saginaw. The former Stanley Cup winner will be at the game to participate in a ceremonial puck drop and sign autographs for fans in the Bud Light Blue Line Club.

The Saginaw Spirit Charitable Foundation will be selling photo and puck packages for Fischer to sign, with the proceeds going to benefit the Jiri Fischer Healthy Hope Foundation. Fans can purchase a Red Wings puck and 8x10 photo package for $10 or a Red Wings puck and 11x14 photo package for $20 - limited quantities of 11x14 photos available. Fans can also get one additional item signed with the purchase of a puck and photo package.

“We are thrilled to have Jiri Fischer as our celebrity guest,” stated Spirit president and managing partner Craig Goslin. “He has been an inspiration to many people, including those with heart conditions. Ours fans will have a great opportunity to get up close and personal with a great athlete who is a Stanley Cup champion both on and off the ice.”
