On January 11 in Calgary, Islanders captain Bill Guerin wore a special jersey with a Hockey Fights Cancer patch next to his “C”.
Fans can now bid on the jersey at NHL.com with the proceeds supporting national and local cancer research institutions, Children’s Hospitals, player charities and local cancer organizations.
Hockey Fights Cancer is a joint initiative founded in December 1998 by the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association to raise money and awareness for hockey's most important fight. It is supported by NHL Member Clubs, NHL Alumni, the NHL Officials' Association, Professional Hockey Trainers and Equipment Managers, corporate marketing partners, broadcast partners and fans throughout North America. To date, more than $9 million has been raised to support national and local cancer research institutions, Children’s Hospitals, player charities and local cancer organizations.
