Ducks to Hold Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night

Executive Management Members, Coaches and Broadcasters Will Wear Pink Ties in an Evening Devoted to Raising Awareness and Funds for Fighting Cancer

Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Brian Burke, owner Henry Samueli and Executive Vice President/COO Tim Ryan show their support of Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night with their commemorative pink ties.

The Ducks joined all National Hockey League teams by hosting Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night on Sunday, Oct. 28 when they played the Edmonton Oilers at Honda Center (5:05 p.m.).  As part of the 10th Anniversary celebration, the Ducks join a league-wide initiative in honoring Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Month by devoting a home game in the month of October to raising awareness and funds for fighting cancer, benefiting the USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center.

“Cancer has affected nearly everyone in our organization in some way,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manger Brian Burke.  “This is a tremendous league-wide initiative that we support whole-heartedly.”

In honor of bringing a heightened awareness to cancer, Ducks executive management, coaches and broadcasters wore commemorative pink ties for Sunday evening’s game.  In addition, in support of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, all NHL players have been wearing pink Hockey Fights Cancer decals on their helmets throughout the month.  As Sunday’s contest marks the Ducks final game in the month of October, players will autograph helmets post-game, which will be auctioned online at anaheimducks.com, with proceeds benefiting the USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center.

In addition, a special member of the Anaheim Ducks/Honda Center family was honored as a community hero during Sunday’s game.  Mike O’Donnell, who served as Honda Center’s Senior Vice President and General Manger and spent 14 years with the arena, was recognized and remembered in a pre-game presentation.  After a three-year battle with cancer, O’Donnell passed away in August 2007.  A booth was located on the main concourse level for donations to the Mike O’Donnell memorial fund at the USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, where he received his care. Representatives from the Norris Center will also be interviewed throughout the game on the Ducks radio broadcast, raising awareness for cancer research.
