"Energizer recognizes the power and importance of Digital Photography and related high-tech devices to our Lithium franchise, and felt that hosting a photo gallery would be really strong attraction within the 2009 NHL Entry Draft."
-- Louise Della Fortuna, Brand Manager at Energizer Canada Inc.

Montreal, Quebec -- To celebrate the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Energizer, together with the NHL & NHLPA, today announced that it will be displaying a collection of framed and autographed prints that are truly authentic and one-of-a-kind. This original memorabilia will be made available to Canadians attending the event, and online to those across the country, through the official NHL Auctions website.

This limited edition collection of former first overall draft picks has been made available for auction, through the generous donation by Energizer Canada -- the official battery of the NHL and the NHLPA.

A portion of the proceeds* from the sale of these items will benefit Hockey Fights CancerTM.  Bidding and payment will be managed exclusively by NHL Auctions. Canadians will have the opportunity to bid on these items beginning June 23 on-line through NHL Auctions website at http://auction.nhl.com.

Officially billed as "NHL 1st Selections of Draft: A Retrospective" this gallery will be on display  on the concourse of the Bell Centre in Montreal, the home the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, throughout the event on Friday, June 26 and Saturday June 27. The on-site collection will feature up to 18 original prints, including hockey legends that were First-Overall Selections from the past four decades.

"Energizer recognizes the power and importance of Digital Photography and related high-tech devices to our Lithium franchise, and felt that hosting a photo gallery would be really strong attraction within the 2009 NHL Entry Draft" remarked Louise Della Fortuna, Brand Manager at Energizer Canada Inc.

"This helps complete the fan experience, and showcases the incredible talent that has been produced by the NHL Entry Draft over the years, all for a good cause," added Laurel Walzak NHL's Director of business development. 

"This is a very special collection of prints of some of the great NHL players who have been drafted first overall over the years," said Kevin Lovitt, NHLPA Director of Corporate Sponsorships. "The future looks bright with many talented young players to be selected in this year's draft."
