Nine Wranglers players, Head Coach Ryan Mougenel and front office staff participated in the six-week fundraising effort, taking the ice after the matinee game on Sunday, March 3, to shave their heads in solidarity with children battling cancers. Wranglers forward Scott Pitt joined the effort the day of after fans raised $1,000 for him during the game, but Mougenel led his team with $1,080 in donations.

Fans that joined the Wranglers’ St. Baldrick’s team primarily had their heads shaved during the intermissions, with top fundraisers joining the Wranglers on the ice for their haircuts. The fan leaders each raised more than $1,250 on their own.

Last season, in conjunction with a specialty St. Baldrick’s jersey that was auctioned on the concourse, the Wranglers raised $32,577 for the organization. This year was the team’s seventh season partnering with St. Baldrick’s.

The Wranglers continue a seven-game road stretch with two games against the Stockton Thunder starting Friday, March 8. The team returns home on Tuesday, March 19, for a 7:05 p.m. game against the Bakersfield Condors.

Celebrating 10 seasons of Wranglers hockey this year, group events are available at all home games, including pre-game ice skating parties, private luxury suites, and rink-side catered party boxes. Groups of ten or more can sit together starting at $13 per ticket, and feature perks such as in-game group recognition and “buy one, get one free” Chuck-A-Puck vouchers. Take advantage of the best deals by calling the Wranglers front office at (702) 471-PUCK. The Wranglers play all 36 regular season home games at Orleans Arena, located next to the Orleans Hotel and Casino at 4500 W. Tropicana Ave.  Visit www.lasvegaswranglers.com.
