One night. One passionate hockey community. One goal: beating cancer.

Hockey Fights Cancer is a powerful night when hockey fans rally together to recognize all the lives impacted by cancer. From moving videos and an emotional puck drop, to basket raffles and exclusive giveaways, this is an event you don’t want to miss.

300-level tickets are available for $23 and 100-level tickets for $65, with $3 from each ticket purchase being donated back to Roswell Park. All fans in attendance will also receive a commemorative scarf that night.

No One Fights Cancer Alone

Over 250 men took control of their health at the Buffalo Sabres prostate cancer screening event on Thursday, March 24, 2016. In addition to the screening, visitors took locker room tours and met Sabres alumni including Val James, the first black American in the NHL and the author of "Black Ice: The Val James Story." 

Player visits always bring smiles to the hospital and brighten our patients' days. Ryan O'Reilly, Evander Kane and Jack Eichel are among the Sabres who have made special, unannounced visits to Roswell Park to spend time with patients.

Annual Holiday Visit

The entire Buffalo Sabres team spread holiday cheer during a visit to Roswell Park on December 8, 2016. The players stopped by each floor, going room-to-room for one-on-one chats with patients and their families, culminating with an ice cream social for our pediatric patients.
