Tonight’s game at the United Center will be the lavenders versus the blues.
Blackhawks players, coaches and team personnel will be decked out in lavender on Wednesday night as the team hosts “Hockey Fights Cancer Night” when they take on the St. Louis Blues.
Players will wear lavender jerseys for warm-ups while coaches and broadcasters will wear lavender ties.
The jerseys, as well as the ties, will be autographed and auctioned online, according to a press release.
Hats, laces and even the boards will be similarly themed.
According to the release, the auction will take place on chicagoblackhawks.com and will run from Nov. 4 through Nov. 18. Proceeds from the sales will be donated to Chicago Blackhawks Charities, with portions being distributed to various local cancer awareness organizations, the release said.
In addition to the lavender-colored apparel, six local children will receive pregame on-ice recognition.
Puck drop is 7 p.m.
