Hockey Fights Cancer

Hockey Fights Cancer™ is an initiative founded in December 1998 by the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association to raise money and awareness for hockey's most important fight. Detroit Red Wings players, fans and staff raise thousands of dollars toward supporting pediatric cancer research in partnership with Comerica Bank each November.
