The Penguins are proud to support the league-wide Hockey Fights Cancer (HFC) program.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will hold Hockey Fights Cancer Night on Thursday, November 16 when the Penguins take on the New Jersey Devils at 7:00 PM at PPG Paints Arena. The game is part of a league-wide program to raise awareness and funds for the NHL’s Hockey Fights Cancer initiative.

Autographed memorabilia, as well as a live-painted jersey from artist and cancer warrior Larry Klu will be available for bid through an online auction held by the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation from Nov. 16-21 at 12:00 PM. Fans can bid by texting PENS to 76278 or visiting Mystery Autographed Pucks signed by Penguins players and warmup pucks used during pregame will also be available for purchase behind Section 104.

All proceeds from the Penguins’ Hockey Fights Cancer fundraising will benefit the Mario Lemieux Immunotherapy Center at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center for cancer research.

Ten different tables hosted by local cancer-related organizations, including the Mario Lemieux Foundation, will be on the concourse to distribute information. The Mario Lemieux Foundation will also be selling its ‘Pittsburgh Is Stronger Than Cancer’ t-shirts.


Penguins players raised funds and awareness for men's health during the NHL's annual Movember campaign by growing out some wicked mustaches.

Early Detection Saves Lives

Some cancers can develop without symptoms, only showing symptoms after they've grown and spread. That is why cancer screenings are so important. Routine cancer screenings play a vital role in early detection, prevention, and treatment of cancer.
