The National Hockey League (NHL) and National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA) are hosting a league-wide auction to benefit the Garth Brooks Teammates For Kids Foundation. Game-worn Islanders jerseys are now be auctioned off at NHL.com until February 28.

These authentic jerseys, worn on January 13 against the New Jersey Devils, display a commemorative, one-of-a-kind embroidered patch emblazoned with the NHLPA, NHL and Teammates For Kids Å“Every Game. Every Kid.Â? logo and has been security-tagged, serial numbered and registered into the NHL-MeiGray Group Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program. Each sweater comes with a Letter of Authenticity from the NHL and NHLPA. You will also find game-worn jerseys from a number of remaining NHL teams that are still up for auction. All 30 teams participated in this event.

"This league-wide jersey auction highlights the level of commitment that the players, the NHLPA, the NHL and its Member Clubs have towards improving the lives of children," Garth Brooks said. "I'm very grateful that this auction will support our programs."

As a result of every player's involvement in the auction, the NHL becomes the first professional sports league to achieve 100% athlete participation in the Garth Brooks Teammates For Kids Foundation. Since its inception, NHL players have donated more than $1.5 million.

About Garth Brooks Teammates For Kids Foundation
The Top Shelf Teammates program, a division of the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation, contributes financial resources to non-profit organizations that benefit children's health, education and inner-city services. Over 260 professional hockey players have participated in the program since its inception in 2001.  Players contribute a predetermined sum based on selected on-ice performance categories such as goals scored or team wins.  Every dollar contributed by players is tripled through an affiliation with other donors. Because outside sources secured by the Foundation cover all operating expenses, 100% of donated money is distributed to children's charities.
