Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada continued its support of athletics events benefiting cancer awareness and research with a sponsorship of the 2018 Ice Vegas Invitational hockey tournament. The tournament, featuring some of the best collegiate hockey teams in the nation, including 5-time National Champion Boston College, ran December 5-6 at T-Mobile Arena. Arizona State won the tournament, with a finals win over Michigan Tech.
