On behalf of its member clubs, the National Hockey League on Thursday donated $100,000 to UNICEF in support of that organization's efforts to help the victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.

"The catastrophe in Haiti requires an urgent response from the National Hockey League family," NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. "The victims need food, water, temporary housing and basic medical supplies, and the emergency effort by UNICEF is helping to provide those critical commodities to communities in desperate need."

Fans in the U.S. who would like to help can go to www.unicefusa.org/nhlhaiti to make a donation or text "GIVE to UNICEF" to 864233 to donate $5 or call 1-800-FOR-KIDS.

In Canada, fans can donate by going to www.unicef.ca/nhl or calling 1-877-955-3111. Canadian residents may make a $5 donation via text message by texting "GIVE" to 45678 (English) or "DON" to 45678 (French).


Quote of the Day

As a player, it's obviously a sad day, but to be on the ice with some of those guys and show our respect as both teams did around center ice, it's definitely a nice touch.
