Each season, the Minnesota Wild joins forces with the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association for Hockey Fights Cancer, an initiative to raise money and awareness for hockey's most important fight. This year's various Wild Hockey Fights Cancer initiatives are presented by Innovative Office Solutions.
