Hockey Fights Cancer Awarness Night

Tonight’s game marks the Kings’ observance of “Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night,” with a few things taking place on and off the ice. Players will be using sticks wrapped in lavender tape, as well as lavender laces and special hats during postgame interviews. At the game, the Kings Care Foundation will be auctioning off several of the game-used sticks, as well as a game-worn helmet from the player of the highest bidder’s choice. Foundation representatives will also be selling autographed pucks and special keychains.

Off the ice, outside Staples Center, there will be a blood-donation vehicle and a bone-marrow registration setup for those between ages 18 and 60.

Also, on an unrelated note, a reminder that the Kings’ wives will once again be selling the “Love for Lokomotiv” bracelets outside section 103.
