It was an emotional night at Scotiabank Arena as the Toronto Maple Leafs hosted Hockey Fights Cancer Night.
The team honored Khanya Solano, a second-grade student who battled and beat a rare form of cancer, Langerhans cell histiocytosis.
Solano was on hand to drop the ceremonial first puck and ring the bell to signify her clean bill of health.
The Maple Leafs wore special purple jerseys during warmups that were auctioned off to benefit Camp Trillium, which offers and promotes recreational experiences to bring children with cancer and their families together.
It was an even more emotional night for Maple Leafs forward Mitchell Marner, who hosted the family of Hayden Foulon, a young friend of his who lost her battle with leukemia in October.
Marner had struck up a friendship with the young fan a year earlier and spoke about being inspired by her fight. The team shared a beautiful tribute to Foulon's life featuring Marner.
