The Detroit Red Wings are approaching what will be their final season at Joe Louis Arena, and goalie Petr Mrazek is paying tribute.

The Red Wings tweeted out photos of Mrazek’s new mask, which salutes the farewell season at ‘The Joe’ and features illustrations of images of the iconic figures in Detroit’s hockey history, including former captain Steve Yzerman and the legendary Gordie Howe, who passed away in June at the age of 88.


The Red Wings will move into their new digs — the Little Caesars Arena — in the fall of 2017.

As for Joe Louis Arena, one of the oldest buildings in the NHL, it will be demolished once the Red Wings leave at the end of next season.
