In 1998, the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players' Association founded the initiative known as Hockey Fights Cancer.

Hockey Fights Cancer is the league’s most important initiative. It helps raise money and awareness for cancer and it runs from mid-October to mid-November.

To date, the NHL has raised 12.8 million dollars to help local cancer research institutions, children's hospitals, player charities, and local cancer organizations.

Hockey Fights Cancer is part of the NHL's "Biggest Assist Happens Off the Ice" campaign, which is the League's “long-standing tradition of addressing important social issues in North America and around the world.”

The Hockey Fights Cancer program 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.

Players also participate by auctioning off game worn jerseys and some of the players wear purple equipment to show support.

On October 23, the Los Angeles Kings will have their Hockey Fights Cancer Night at STAPLES Center when they take on the Buffalo Sabres. They will wear lavender-hued warm-up jerseys that will be signed and auctioned off. The proceeds will benefit cancer-related charitable organizations. The Kings' goal during the month is to raise and donate more than $100,000.
