“The Jr. Blades organization takes pride in being able to help others and most of us know someone personally who has been affected by cancer,” said head coach Todd Pococke. “This event has been a tradition of ours for years in which we are excited to be able to put this on again this season. This is our way of doing what we can to help and it means a lot to us.”

The Jr. Blades will wear special Pink In The Rink jerseys during the weekend series. The custom jerseys worn by each player will be up for purchase for the during the Silent Auction that will conclude after Sunday's game. 

This year both a silent and online auction will take place that will feature several items including baskets, jerseys, tickets and specialty items where a portion of the proceeds will go to benefiting the charity.
