Wednesday, the Washington Capitals hosted Hockey Fights Cancer night at Verizon Center. They had 11-year-old blood cancer survivor Ryan Darby participate in the ceremonial faceoff (which was adorable). They also wore purple-colored warm-up jerseys with lavender highlights, colors that represent all forms of cancer.
During the game, the Caps auctioned the signed jerseys off (which were signed with a purple sharpie) and Chris Gordon reports they raised over $55,000 for charity.
Chris took photos of the sweaters with his iPhone 6. Check them out. We even have an Aaron Volpatti jersey sighting!
