Hurricanes Show Off "Pink in the Rink" Jerseys

On Monday afternoon members of the Lethbridge Hurricanes posed for pictures with a number of local breast cancer survivors at the ENMAX Centre.

The hockey club showed off special pink jerseys that the players will wear for two games this weekend to raise money and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. The jersey is pink with the Canes' logo on the front and a pink breast cancer ribbon on the shoulders. It also reads "Canes" around the neck.

Ginny Goulet is with the C.I.B.C. Run for the Cure in Lethbridge and is also a breast cancer survivor. She says, "We're really excited to be partnered with the Hurricanes this year. Everyone has a mother, grandmother, sister, a girlfriend, and or a wife. Unfortunately one out of eight women will be touched by breast cancer at one point in their lifetime. This is very important that we are partnered with these boys. Hockey players across the country are getting involved in fighting breast cancer and other cancers as well. It's been a fun time organizing this and I think it'll be a fun two nights."

The Hurricanes will wear the jerseys when they host Prince Albert Friday and Saskatoon Saturday. The jerseys will be auctioned off in a silent auction format just after the Saturday game. All the proceeds will go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

  1. Hi Pat!
    I was just wondering if you know if the Canes and staff will be shaving thier heads after Saturday nights game?
    Thanks :)

  2. That I don't know. Last year, it was a last minute thing put together by the players. If it doesn happen again, it would be a player initiative.

  3. Has Preston talked about bringing up any other prospects during the injuries ?

  4. No. He had called up Henry and Balog last week while we were away in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, but there's been no mention this week of any call-ups. Not as of right now anyway.
