BUFFALO, N.Y. — Two Buffalo Sabres are wearing purple in Thursday night's game to raise awareness about domestic violence.

Cody Hodgson and Patrick Kaleta will be wearing purple domestic violence bracelets when the team takes on the Montreal Canadiens. They're in honor of Jacqueline Wisniewski, a receptionist at ECMC, who was shot and killed by her former boyfriend, Dr. Timothy Jorden, last June at the hospital.

Both players say they're honored to do something to help bring awareness to the issue.

"Anytime you can help a cause like domestic violence and you try to do that in a community like this. We're all so close," said Hodgson.

"It's an honor for me to wear it and be beneficial in helping in awareness," Kaleta said.

Hodgson and Kaleta both say supporting causes like domestic violence awareness is very important to them.
