Former Detroit Red Wing Darren McCarty to auction some possessions

The 33-year-old forward filed for bankruptcy last year, listing assets of US$1.9 million and debts of $6.2 million. The first of two bankruptcy auctions was set for Nov. 5, the Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News reported.

C.B. Kaye & Associates, the auctioneer handling the sale, listed items being sold including a 1999 Harley Davidson motorcycle, a 22-foot speed boat, a 7-foot billiards table and a cigar humidor.

Messages seeking comment were left Saturday with lawyers representing McCarty in his bankruptcy case.

The Red Wings bought out McCarty's contract in 2005 following a lockout that forced the cancellation of the 2004-2005 season. He's currently in the second year of a two-year contract with the Calgary Flames.

McCarty played 11 seasons for the Red Wings, where his combativeness, charitable work and moonlighting in a rock band made him a fan favourite.
