Relive Hockey Fights Cancer night
The Chicago Blackhawks hosted “Hockey Fights Cancer Night” at the United Center on Sunday, April 7, partnering with the Make-a-Wish and Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer foundations for a special pregame on-ice recognition of seven local children whose wish was to meet their Blackhawks heroes.

In support of cancer awareness, Blackhawks players wore unique warmup jerseys, while coaches and broadcasters wore lavender ties, both of which are being auctioned off online. Each jersey will be autographed by the player who wore it, while each tie will be packaged with an autographed photograph of the individual wearing the tie.
All jerseys and ties are being auctioned off to fans on chicagoblackhawks.com beginning on Sunday, April 7, and running through 12 p.m. on Monday, April 15. Proceeds from the sales will be donated to Chicago Blackhawks Charities, with portions being distributed to various local cancer awareness organizations.
