DETROIT (WJBK) -

Detroit Red Wings fans upset that Larry Murphy was dropped from FOX Sports Detroit telecasts can show their support with a new T-shirt.

The web site Alternative Hero is offering a red shirt with the words Bring Back MURPH. They're available through Sunday for $24.

Murphy, a Hall of Fame defenseman, had been part of the Wings television coverage for 10 seasons. His release came as a surprise. "It was definitely a surprise and a shock to say the least," Murphy told 97.1 The Ticket's Stoney and Bill on Tuesday.

Fox Sports Detroit released a statement saying: "We wanted our primary team of Mickey Redmond and Ken Daniels to call the remaining games as the Red Wings make a push for the playoffs. We thought it was only fair to let Larry know as soon as possible that he would not be scheduled for any more assignments. We thank Larry for his contributions to our telecasts over the years and we wish him well."
