Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night
November 15, 2016 vs. Calgary Flames

Each season, the Minnesota Wild joins forces with the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association for Hockey Fights Cancer™, an initiative to raise money and awareness for hockey's most important fight.

Fans attending the game are encouraged to wear lavender to show their support. The night will be dedicated to supporting the cause in numerous ways: 

  • Wild players will wear lavender Hockey Fights Cancer jerseys during on-ice warmups, which will be auctioned off starting Nov. 15 on the official Minnesota Wild NHL Auctions page.
  • Volunteers will collect new, unused pajamas at entrance gates of Xcel Energy Center prior to the game, which will be donated to local pediatric hospitals. Season Ticket Holders can earn 1,000 Wild Rewards points for their donations to the PJ Drive.
  • The nightly Split-the-Pot raffle will benefit HopeKids, which provides support for families who have a child with cancer or other life-threatening medical condition.
  • The game's Bench Buddies, BMO Harris® Bank Flag Bearer and Zamboni® ride experiences will be donated to pediatric cancer families.
  • Representatives from each official HFC charity group will be available at the HFC information table at Section 104 on the main concourse.
  • Children's Hospital Cancer Kids Fund will be presented with proceeds from the Minnesota Wild Foundation's annual gala "Wild About Children." 
  • Fans and organizations can also donate bundles of tickets to the Nov. 15 game to cancer-affiliated organizations. Learn more by clicking here.

Donations
Fans can once again donate to Hockey Fights Cancer at cash registers by rounding up their purchase or naming a donation amount at Xcel Energy Center concessions stands and at all Hockey Lodge locations throughout October and November.
