Join the fight! Through Hockey Fights Cancer, the NHL and the NHLPA are committed to raising funds and awareness for hockey's most important fight. Each November, Hockey Fights Cancer makes its return to the concourse of Rogers Place. Spearheaded by the Oilers Ladies, Hockey Fights Cancer gives fans the opportunity to support this worthy cause by purchasing limited-edition Oilers items with net proceeds going to the Kids With Cancer's 'Brainworks' program and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation.
For one game night each December, Shirts Off Our Backs presented by Rogers takes over the concourse of Rogers Place. A full roster of crested, autographed Oilers home jerseys go up for grabs! With a donation to the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton, fans have the opportunity to win one of these special jerseys being raffled throughout the game, and receive the jerseys from the Edmonton Oilers after the game in a special on-ice ceremony. Net proceeds benefit the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation.
