Lauriane Rougeau, Natalie Spooner and more as the Montreal Stars’ penultimate homestand of the season kicks off with the fifth edition of the Let’s Beat Breast Cancer benefit game this Saturday, Feb. 21, against the reigning Clarkson Cup champion Toronto Furies.

It’s the first of two against the Furies this weekend, with a rematch set for Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m.

Winners of four straight, the Stars recently punched their ticket to the Clarkson Cup playoffs, which will take place from March 4-7, in Markham, Ontario, and are assured of a top-three finish in the standings.

Let’s Beat Breast Cancer! – Feb. 21 (6 p.m.), Étienne-Desmarteau Arena

Hockey fans are invited to join the Stars for a great game and a great cause! The team will donate 60 percent of proceeds from the game to the Wellness Initiative of the Cedars Breast Clinic at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). The clinic, which treats more than 25,000 patients each year, offers kinesiology, psychooncology, lymphedema therapy and exercise programs to women with breast cancer.

Stars players will sport special pink jerseys in the first period, courtesy of Bauer, which will be among the numerous items up for bid in a silent auction. The auction will also include Olympic memorabilia, autographed hockey sticks and more! There will be door prizes for fans arriving early, as well.

As is tradition at every Stars home game, fans will get the chance to meet and interact with the players at the always popular post-game autograph session.

Tickets are available for purchase online at montreal.cwhl.ca. Doors will open at 5 p.m. As seating is not assigned, fans are encouraged to arrive early.

Over the past four years, the Montreal Stars have donated over $45,000 to the breast cancer cause. Help make this the team’s biggest fundraiser ever. Enjoy some of the very best in women’s hockey and support a cause the Stars hold very close to their hearts.
