MISSISSAUGA, ON – On Saturday October 21st, the Mississauga Steelheads will welcome fans to the Paramount Fine Foods Centre as they host the Kitchener Rangers for their 10th annual Pink at the Rink game in support of Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer and Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer is the world’s largest road hockey fundraiser.
