The prognosticating rodent will be the guest of honor for Salute to Groundhog Day Night. A group of Phil's tuxedoed and top-hatted handlers will be on hand, as well.
One-of-a-kind jerseys will be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting the Red Wings Community Foundation.
Groundhog Day t-shirts will be given away at the game; the shirts will not be available at the gate.
