The boys and girls hit the ice tonight at Duluth Heritage Center for the Minnesota Hockey Fights Cancer Games. Community support was in full affect as folks came out to watch teams play five games between two rinks. There was chuck-a-puck, raffles, auction items and other things to contribute to the fight against cancer.

“We were at a board meeting for the Duluth Amateur Hockey Association and I immediately just thought, wow, what a great cause. What a great event. I called my friend Brian LeFlore, who coaches the Hermantown Peewee Double-A team and asked him if he would like to turn our game into a Minnesota hockey fights cancer game and he agreed to that,” says David Mclean, Coach of Duluth East Peewee AA Team.

Cancer is a disease that touches so many lives. Looking at ways in which the community can help support through a sport like hockey is truly special.

“We came together to support our community and support our individual members of our associations that have battled cancer, that have lost people to cancer, or are currently fighting cancer to show them the support and that hockey supports our community,” finishes Mclean.
