The Stanley Cup will tour East Coast Hockey League franchise cities to raise funds as part of the National Hockey League's ongoing effort to assist those affected by the Hurricane Katrina disaster. Details of the season-long tour, which will be coordinated with the ECHL to maximize fund-raising opportunities in such ECHL franchise cities as Biloxi, Mississippi (Mississippi Sea Wolves), still are being formalized.
The NHL and NHL Players' Association also will be making significant monetary donations to the effort, complementing activities already undertaken by individual NHL franchises such as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, who, in conjunction with the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim, the American Red Cross and other organizations collected more than $400,000 for those affected.
