Some NHL players will hit the ice this weekend with pink sticks. In a tribute to hockey moms and to raise awareness of breast cancer, Tie Domi, Mats Sundin, Steve Yzerman, Sidney Crosby and others — will have a pink stick in hand tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday. TPS Hockey, the sports equipment company, is forking out an estimated $50,000 for the initiative which sprouted in the Gretzky family home in Brantford, Ont. The idea took root shortly after the death in December of Wayne Gretzky's mother, Phyllis. "It's a tribute to hockey moms," said Brad Janson, TPS's director of pro-hockey.More information can be found at Frameworth.
