Proceeds from the NHL face coverings sold on NHLShop.com will go to support the Feeding America and Food Banks Canada COVID-19 Response Fund, the league says.

The face coverings are intended for personal use, in keeping with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Health Canada, regarding the use of cloth face coverings in public settings as a step to limit the community spread of COVID-19.

The NHL has licensed FOCO to manufacture the face coverings, which are available with branding for all 31 NHL teams in packs of three for $24.99 (USD) on shop.nhl.com and foco.com.
