Hockey Fights Cancer Night Recap
Serving as Child Ambassador the evening was 17-year-old Marshall, a local Preds fan and cancer patient. Marshall was given the honor of dropping the puck in a pre-game ceremonial faceoff and was named Mayor of Smashville for the evening – charging him with the task of welcoming the team back on the ice with an air-raid siren from the band stage after the first intermission. Other initiatives from the night included a pre-game meet and greet for Zebra’s Care, post-game meet and greets for Children’s Hospital patients with Preds players, former cancer patient and 2009 Child Ambassador Trace Kimler serving as the BlueCross BlueShield Blueliner of the game. Trace participated in the ceremonial puck drop in October of 2009 for Hockey Fights Cancer and is currently in remission from Ewing Sarcoma cancer.
