November is Hockey Fights Cancer month in the NHL. This year, the AHL will also be joining the NHL in participating in Hockey Fights Cancer-themed initiatives.
On November 4, the Hershey Bears will be hosting a Hockey Fights Cancer night at Giant Center for the first time ever. The team will wear special lavender jerseys, and the first 5,000 fans will receive a lavender t-shirt. The jerseys will be auctioned off after the game, with all the funds raised going to the American Cancer Society and the Four Diamonds Fund.
