Photos: Firefighters face off at benefit hockey game for Hudson

$15,533 raised for nine-year-old Hudson Fletcher who is battling cancer

The Garson arena was packed with students cheering on a team of Sudbury firefighters as they took to the ice against firefighters from Toronto on March 30.

Toronto may have won the Fire Fighters' Cup with a 4-3 victory, but everyone was playing for the same cause - nine-year-old Hudson Fletcher, who is battling cancer.

The benefit hockey game raised $15,533 for Hudson and his family - mom Natalie, father Corey and sister Dylan.

"It's an overwhelming feeling of happiness for everybody," Natalie said.

The firefighters also surprised Hudson with a signed jersey from his favourite player, Sidney Crosby.
