The NHLPA and the NHL, together with Getty Images and Greystone Books, published Reflections on a Hockey Season: The 2007 NHL Year in Photographs.  The first of an annual visual celebration, the book chronicled the highlights and candid, behind-the-scenes images from the 2006-07 NHL season. 

Hockey Fights Cancer, established in 1998 as a joint charitable initiative founded by the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players’ Association to raise money and awareness for hockey's most important fight, celebrates its 10th anniversary during the 2007-08 NHL season.  Reflections on a Hockey Season will serve as part of this celebration by donating proceeds from its sale to the cause.  The book also is available on and at NHL Club and retail stores, including the NHL Powered by Reebok Store in New York City.

Hockey Fights Cancer 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, Hockey Fights Cancer has raised more than $9 million.
