And on Tuesday, he got his wish.
Thanks to your votes and some excellent campaigning, Cleary emerged as the third winner of ‘Operation Bobblehead.’ His likeness, in bobble form, will be given away to the first 7,500 fans in attendance when the Wings host Phoenix on January 12.
One of Cleary’s major campaign promises, made on the Mojo in the Morning show, was to sign his bobblehead for any fan that wanted it autographed.
Fans can also now pick the final Red Wing to bobble in our ‘Operation Bobblehead’ promotion. Which player will join Cleary, Pavel Datsyuk, Johan Franzen, Henrik Zetterberg and Nick Lidstrom? That’s up to you! This time around, the three highest vote totals will move on to a final round of voting, going head-to-head with two other teammates to determine a winner.
The bobblehead giveaway schedule is as follows.
Thursday, October 13 vs. Vancouver – PAVEL DATSYUK (Presented by AT&T)
Thursday, November 3 vs. Calgary – HENRIK ZETTERBERG (Presented by DMC)
Thursday, December 8 vs. Phoenix – JOHAN FRANZEN
