Blackhawks Head Coach Joel Quenneville, along with the rest of the coaching staff, will be wearing the Hockey Fights Cancer ties. Blackhawks broadcasters Pat Foley and Eddie Olczyk, along with Blackhawks front office executives will be wearing it as well.

Hockey Fights Cancer is a joint 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. It 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, more than $12 million has been raised to support national and local cancer research institutions, Children's Hospitals, player charities and local cancer organizations. It is a component of the NHL's "Biggest Assist Happens off the Ice" campaign, the League's long-standing tradition of addressing important social issues in North America and around the world.

You can show your support by purchasing Hockey Fights Cancer merchandise such as: ties, track jackets and hats at Shop.NHL.com.
