CALGARY, AB – Mike Smith isn’t just fighting for Elle. He’s standing behind her, too.
And a little to the left.
Smith lined up on the blue line behind his niece for a special ceremony prior to the Calgary Flames’ game against the New Jersey Devils at Scotiabank Saddledome on Sunday, in Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night.
The ceremony, in conjunction with the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation, recognized six children who have survived cancer or are continuing to fight.
