WEST POINT, N.Y. – For the second consecutive season, the Army Hockey team will help raise prostate cancer awareness with a “House of Blues” promotion on Saturday, Jan. 5.
The Black Knights will face Atlantic Hockey Association opponent Robert Morris at 7:05 p.m. and a bevy of events are planned to raise awareness at Tate Rink.
The first 500 fans through the turnstiles will be presented with bracelets and t-shirts with a limited number of fans being given blue t-shirts, courtesy of Dana Distributors and Prestige Graphics.
The Black Knights will don special blue jerseys for the contest as well.
Army hockey players helped organize the event and have helped invite fans through social media.
In addition to the jerseys, t-shirts and bracelets, literature will be available in the Tate Rink lobby to educate.
“I’m proud of the players for reaching out and helping in the community,” said Army hockey head coach Brian Riley. “This was a way they could give back. The hockey community has done a great job of raising awareness for this terrible disease and it says a lot about the caliber of players we have that they volunteer their time to support this cause.”
