The color pink is always a welcomed sight in any rink; even more so during the month of October. For those that may be unaware, October is national breast cancer awareness month. Over the past few seasons, many teams have taken the opportunity to support the cause in various ways, raising money for foundations across the country. Dying the ice pink, pink jerseys, and pink rally towels are just a few of the game night alterations made to show support. “Pink In The Rink” nights take place throughout the season, and not just during October. One team that will show support specifically this month, the Providence Bruins. On October 26th, the Bruins will take on breast cancer, with a portion of ticket sales to benefit the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation. The American Hockey League has a strong history of supporting it’s communities and charities. A website which has listed many cancer- related AHL promotional events for the upcoming season is listed here. While the NHL is locked out, the AHL is an avid supporter in locking out cancer this season.
