Pink in the Rink Round Up
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, most North American hockey leagues begin their schedule, and most minor and junior teams won’t pass up a chance to get more publicity or help raise money for charity; therefore, Pink in the Rink is huge in the hockey community. While you’ll see some events later on in the season, the majority of them occur during October or just into November. Here’s a, most likely incomplete despite a decent amount of research, league-by-league listing of teams:
American Hockey League
The Stockton Thunder will host their Thunder goes Pink VII event November 2-4.
Central Hockey League
The Allen Americans will wear pink jerseys Friday November 2 but they have not been unveiled yet.
Southern Professional Hockey League
The Columbus Cottonmouths had pink ice while also wearing special jerseys to celebrate last season’s championship.
Ontario Hockey League
Quebec Major Junior Hockey League
Western Hockey League
United States Hockey League
