Zach Parise’s family has never been directly affected by breast cancer, but he knows the terrible toll it can have. The mother of one of Parise’s close friends is a breast cancer survivor.

“You could see how it impacted the family,” Parise said. “I think it’s an important thing, especially to show that we’re supporting the cause and supporting the awareness.”

Tonight Parise, along with David Clarkson, Patrik Elias, Jamie Langenbrunner, and Travis Zajac, will wear pink mouthguards to show their support for the battle against the dreaded disease.

“Those are the little things that show we pay attention to things that affect us all in certain ways,” Elias said. “If it’s not certain family members, then it’s friends. Health is the most important thing, and we want to show our support that way.”

Tonight is the Devils' annual Hockey Fights Cancer night. In partnership with the NHL, the Devils will present a check for $10,000 to the Newark Beth Israel Medical Center Foundation to go towards their cancer-related treatment and care.

Proceeds from Mystery Puck sales will go toward cancer charities. Each $20 puck will be signed by a mystery player that will be revealed after purchase. Limit one puck per person.

Devils Den team stores will sell Hockey Fights Cancer merchandise. Items include a Hockey Fights Cancer tie, scarf, and t-shirt. Players' wives and girlfriends will be collecting cash donations at the door.
