2017 Hockey Fights Cancer Night

Sharks celebrate Hockey Fights Cancer Night

The Sharks celebrate Hockey Fights Cancer Night at SAP Center on November 18 including a ceremonial puck drop and rally towel wave

  • 02:03 •

Before seven-year-old Tyler DeCourcey was tasked with dropping the ceremonial first puck when the San Jose Sharks took on the Boston Bruins this past Saturday, his twin brother Alex had something important to say to defenseman Brent Burns.

"He's in remission from cancer," Alex immediately told the blueliner when he greeted the family during warm-ups.

"Yeah, my first year!" Tyler chimed in.

That special evening was the Sharks official Hockey Fights Cancer Night presented by Kaiser Permanente and while the family was celebrating the most important anniversary of Tyler's life, it also served as somewhat of a homecoming as they stood surrounded by the entire Sharks organization.

On January 6, 2016, nearly six months after Tyler was officially diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, the DeCourcey's were at the hospital for what they thought was a routine clinic visit. It was then they found out that quick trip was going to be one of the most challenging days of his diagnoses yet.
