Hockey Fights Cancer

A joint initiative of the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players’ Association powered by the V Foundation for Cancer Research, Hockey Fights Cancer unites the hockey community in support of cancer patients and their families. 

Together with players, coaches, officials, equipment managers, front office staff, corporate partners and fans, we will fund game-changing research dedicated to improving treatment options, finding cures and saving lives. 

Through the help of the Canadian and American Cancer Societies, the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative looks to improve the lives of those families currently battling a form of cancer.

June 2024, the NHL and NHLPA, together with the V Foundation for Cancer Research, announced a funding of $2.9 million that will go directly to life-saving cancer research. Join the fight by making a donation to the V Foundation at
