The Dallas Stars held their annual Hockey Fights Cancer night presented by UT Southwestern Simmons Cancer Center on October 24 when the Stars hosted the Calgary Flames. The 2013-14 season marked the 15th anniversary of Hockey Fights Cancer, the National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players' Association joint charitable initiative dedicated to raising awareness for national and local organizations involved in cancer care and research.

As part of the league wide initiative, all members of the Dallas Stars coaching staff wore Hockey Fights Cancer ties on the bench during the game and Dallas Stars players will used lavender tape on sticks and equipment. Four non-profit organizations (Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Movember, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and ZERO) were in attendance with tables on the concourse to provide fans with information and opportunities to donate to cancer research.

Julie Dobbs, FOX Sports Southwest producer and former Dallas Stars employee, participated in the ceremonial puck drop. Dobbs was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year and is currently undergoing treatment.

Since its inception in 1998, Hockey Fights Cancer has donated approximately $13 million to cancer organizations in all 30 NHL markets.
