ST. LOUIS - Fans in attendance at Saturday's game vs. Anaheim will be encouraged to use their cell phone's flashlight feature for a special League-wide Hockey Fights Cancer pregame tribute.

The St. Louis Blues will participate in the moment in honor of Ari Dougan, a passionate Blues fan who passed away in 2017 at age 11 following an eight-year battle with cancer. Ari developed a close friendship with Vladimir Tarasenko and even joined the team for a two-game road trip as Tarasenko's guest.

#SpreadArisLight bracelets will be sold throughout the Enterprise Center concourse and outside Portal 15. Proceeds will benefit the Spread Ari's Light Foundation, which raises money to support families and children with cancer.

In addition, fans who wish to volunteer to be listed as a potential blood stem cell donor can stop by Portal 15 before 8 p.m. to join the Be The Match registry.
