GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- The Phoenix Coyotes, in conjunction with the National Hockey League, announced today the organization’s efforts for the league-wide initiative Hockey Fights Cancer. The Coyotes will host Hockey Fights Cancer night at Jobing.com Arena when they take on the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday, October 19. Game time is 6:00 p.m.

In an effort to increase awareness for the fight against cancer, Coyotes ownership, management, coaches and broadcasters will all wear the lavender, official Hockey Fights Cancer ties. Coyotes Captain Shane Doan, Assistant Captain Keith Yandle, goaltender Mike Smith and forward Dave Moss will also wear “HFC” ties before and after the game. Additionally, players will continue to support Hockey Fights Cancer by wearing decals on their helmets throughout the month of October. Some Coyotes players will also use lavender tape on their game sticks.

Throughout the game, fans will have an opportunity to purchase tickets for the 50/50 raffle with proceeds going to Pepped Up!, a local organization dedicated to providing portable entertainment to child patients suffering from life threatening or terminal diseases such as Lymphoma, Leukemia, Myeloma, and other forms of cancer. PeppedUp! was founded to help provide the simple childhood joys of movies, music, books, and games to brave children fighting deadly diseases. Pepped Up! helps these children and their families cope with the pain, fear, and isolation of their illness.

In addition, the American Cancer Society and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will have information booths and representatives throughout the concourse at Jobing.com Arena to help raise awareness. Coyotes Charities will have silent auction items available with all proceeds directed to the Melonhead Foundation, an organization that provides financial assistance to families who have children with cancer.
