Sorry for not updating weekly like I was trying to do after week 1, but I don’t really think it is very helpful to just regurgitate the scores, when they can be easily found on theahl.com.  Well, as many throughout the hockey community know, November is officially MOvember. Many AHL and NHL players are taking part in MOvember in order to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

This year MOvember is especially important to the hockey community because one of its own was just diagnosed with testicular cancer. Edmonton Oilers prospect and current Oklahoma City Baron, Brandon Davidson, will immediately undergo treatment at The Peggy Charles Stephenson Cancer Center on the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center. The twenty one year old defensemen is in his rookie season with the Barons and hails from Lethbridge,  Alberta.

Make sure that you find your favorite team and/or players to donate  check out the MOvember site.
