PHOENIX COYOTES PLAYERS TO USE
TPS PINK STICKS TO HELP
FIGHT BREAST CANCER
Sunday, March 18th
The Phoenix Coyotes are proud to announce their involvement with the 2nd Annual "Tribute to Hockey Moms" by TPS Hockey to raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. March 16th, 17th and 18th, over 400 players around the NHL will use special pink sticks to support the cause.
Inspired by the passing of Wayne Gretzky's mom, the most famous hockey mom of them all, the event is a small way for hockey players around the world to say thank you to their moms and raise awareness about breast cancer.
Several Coyotes players plan to use the pink sticks throughout the week at practice and during warm up for the Coyotes game on Sunday, March 18th at Dallas. Coyotes' center Kevyn Adams will use the stick in the game versus the Stars. After the games, the sticks will be auctioned off on ebay.com and ebay.ca through the month of April.
The goal is to raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. Last year's event and online auction of the pink sticks raised over $150,000. This years auction will be available through ebay under the heading TPS Tribute to Hockey Moms Pink Stick Auction.
Funds raised will support breast cancer research through the NHL/NHLPA's Hockey Fights Cancer program and its Canadian charity partner, the Canadian Cancer Society.
