Niagara Falls, Ontario – The Professional Hockey Players’ Association (PHPA) and ECHL, in association with The MeiGray Group, have announced that the 11th Annual Captains’ Club Jersey Auction to benefit the ECHL Health and Welfare Trust Fund is underway.
Game worn ECHL Captain sweaters from the 2014-15 season will be auctioned online at auction.nhl.com, now through 9 pm ET on Thursday, Oct. 29.
The Captain’s Club Jersey Auction, which was initiated in 2004, helps support the ECHL Heath and Welfare Trust Fund, providing ECHL players and their families with access to counseling services when dealing with personal and behavioral health concerns as well as assistance to players who may be suffering a hardship.
“The Captains’ Club jersey auction is a great way for fans and collectors alike to obtain game-worn memorabilia, while directly supporting ECHL players and their families,” said PHPA Executive Director, Larry Landon.
“It’s an honor to be working again with the PHPA,” said MeiGray President Barry Meisel. “These are great jerseys of some of the ECHL’s great leaders…and for a very worthy cause.”
