Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Month: November

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.

Throughout the month of November, Hockey Fights Cancer blankets will be sold on the main concourse at Minnesota Wild home games. For every HFC blanket purchased, one will be donated to local cancer centers.

Below you will see three different ways for you to get involved in the fight against cancer. Come enjoy the game as a fan, purchase a package to support tickets being donated to local cancer charities, or for current Season Ticket Holders, donate your tickets through My Wild Account.


The Minnesota Wild is partnering with six local cancer charities for Hockey Fights Cancer during the 2017-18 season. Each charity will be individually highlighted at the following Minnesota Wild home games.

Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night
November 14, 2017 vs. Philadelphia Flyers

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 until Dec. 1 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 Reward points for their donations to the PJ Drive.
  • Hockey Fights Cancer blankets will be available for purchase at Section 104. For every HFC blanket purchased, one will be donated to local cancer centers.
  • The nightly Split-the-Pot raffle will benefit Spare Key, which provides assistance to families in crisis with critically ill or seriously injured children through housing grant payment assistance, engaged resource referral and advocacy.
  • 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 121 on the main concourse.
  • Fans and organizations can also purchase bundles of tickets to the Nov. 14 game to be donated to cancer-affiliated organizations. Learn more by clicking here.

Fans can once again donate to Hockey Fights Cancer at cash registers by rounding up their purchase or naming a donation amount at all Hockey Lodge locations throughout November.
