The Harlem Globetrotters say they feel for hockey-deprived NHL fans, so they're taking their brand of basketball out onto the ice.

The sporty entertainers are strapping on custom cleats and hockey helmets for a Jan. 7 basketball game on ice against the Global Select. It's at Millennium Park in the western Michigan city of Portage, near Kalamazoo.

Admission to the noon game is free. The Globetrotters play on a conventional court the next day at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo.

The Globetrotters say Detroit Red Wings alumnus Kevin Miller will join the team for the game on ice.

The Red Wings and the rest of the NHL are shut down by a management lockout over a player contract dispute.
