Bobcat Hockey shows support for cancer research

The Bobcat hockey team will go the entire month of November without shaving in an attempt to raise $1,000 for a cancer society of their choice. “The entire Bobcat Hockey team will be taking part in this, even the coaches,” said goalie Will Thompson. Though the team hasn’t decided on a cancer society as of yet, they plan to make that decision this week while their facial hair begins to grow.

“This is the first year we have done it,” said Thompson. “We’re looking for support anywhere we can get it.” If the hair is long enough it will be donated to make wigs. “We are going to have a shaving event…and shave moustaches,” said Thompson. Many players have already started growing moustaches with the hope of having the thickest moustache on the team. Anyone interested in donating can contact Will Thompson via email at

Besides the “No Shave November” event, the Bobcats will actually be playing hockey this weekend as well. President Cruzado will be dropping the puck at the Haynes Pavillion at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds on Friday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. when the Bobcats take on Boise State. There will be a second game against Boise State on Saturday, Nov. 3 at 5 p.m. at the Fairgrounds. Admission is $5.
