NHL teams, and others in the hockey world, have continued to step up to help those affected by the wildfires in Fort McMurray, Alberta.

The St. Louis Blues raised more than $25,000 from their 50/50 raffle and silent auction during Game 4 of the Western Conference Second Round against the Dallas Stars. Blues forward Scottie Upshall was born in Fort McMurray.

The NHL, Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets each have donated $100,000 to the relief efforts. Canadian college hockey player Jaret Smith also made this offer.

The Vancouver Canucks have started a fund to raise money for the region and also promised one fan some relief if his Bo Horvat jersey is damaged.

Tweet from @VanCanucks: @DakotaJaymes23 - Our thoughts are with you and everyone affected by #ymmfire. If your jersey needs replacing, we will help.
