Oswego, NY – Carolina Hurricanes forward Erik Cole recently celebrated his 600th game as a National Hockey League player. Erik began his hockey career as a member of the Oswego Minor Hockey Association. In recognition of that milestone and to show his support for members of the Oswego Minor Hockey Association taking part in this year’s St. Baldrick’s Day fundraiser, the Erik Cole Dream Big Foundation is donating $600 to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
“I am proud to partner with my fellow OMHA hockey players in contributing to such a worthy cause as St. Baldrick’s. I salute the youth hockey players for their community service and in raising awareness of cancer research for children,” Cole said.

In previous years, Erik Cole and other members of the Carolina Hurricanes organization have shaved their heads to raise money for this cause. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation benefits childhood cancer research. The Erik Cole Dream Big Foundation is a 501(c) 3 organization that supports the development of youth hockey programs and provides support for children suffering from cancer and other diseases.
