TORONTO -- Toronto's toughest player is expected to wear pink skates against the New York Rangers to support the fight against cancer.
Colton Orr put in a request with Reebok for the league's Hockey Fights Cancer month. The company delivered hand-painted pink skates for the forward to wear in Saturday night's game against the Rangers.
Orr is wearing the skates in memory of Todd Davison, a former teammate with the WHL's Regina Pats who died in 2006 from a rare form of cancer.
Orr's skates were painted by artist David Arrigo and will be auctioned off for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
