Canes Fighting Cancer in November

The Lethbridge Hurricanes Hockey Club is proud to announce that for the entire month of November the team will be raising awareness and funds for the Canadian Cancer Society in what is being called “Canes Crush Cancer” Month.

With three Hurricanes alumni being diagnosed with cancer over the last calendar year, the Hurricanes have decided to help raise awareness of cancer’s that are common in men. Former ‘Canes Dylan Tait, Ty Rimmer and the late Cody Smuk, who lost his battle, were all diagnosed with testicular cancer.
During the Hurricanes seven home games during the month of November, the team will be raising awareness of some of the most common cancers in men: testicular, lung, colorectal, liver, skin and prostate cancer. At every game, the Hurricanes will be selling t-shirts for $25.00 with the “Canes Crush Cancer” logo in the colour that represents the six cancers listed – all proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society.


Friday, November 6th – Colorectal Cancer

Saturday, November 7th – Lung Cancer

Wednesday, November 18th – Testicular Cancer

Friday, November 20th – Liver Cancer

Saturday, November 21st – Skin Cancer

Thursday, November 26th – Prostate Cancer

At the last home game of the month on Friday, November 27th, the Hurricanes will wear a special “Canes Crush Cancer” jersey. The jerseys will be available for purchase through a silent auction, which will take place throughout the entire month on the concourse; all the proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

The Hurricanes are also offering a special ticket promo during the month of November. For just $30.00, you can purchase two tickets to any game in November (can be used at the same game, or individually) and $5.00 from every $30.00 purchase will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

  1. Of course all good things come to an end... And wouldn't you know that it would have to be against a team with one of the worst records in the league. Well, it was Awesome while it lasted! Only into the second, but I don't think we will see any rabbits out of the hat in this one at 6-2. Then again,.... you never know with this group!

    Hey coach. It was not your goalie's night from the beginning. Gotta pull him before goal #6, no??

    Start another W-streak ... starting in Kelowna??
