Penguins Taking Part in \"Face-off Against Autism\"
The NHL and NHLPA has teamed up with Autism Speaks on “Face-off Against Autism,” a unique online fundraising campaign that involves all 16 teams that qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs. Penguins fans will be able support the team throughout the playoffs while also supporting autism research and awareness efforts.

Face-off Against Autism will highlight a key NHL player from each of the 16 playoff teams, with Marc-Andre Fleury being the Penguins’ representative. His photo will be transformed into a digital puzzle, and fans can purchase individual pieces for $10.

Every fan who visits http://www.autismspeaks.org/nhl and buys at least one puzzle piece will receive a 20-percent discount off their next purchase at the NHL Store powered by Reebok and be automatically entered for a chance to win one of four jerseys autographed by NHL stars, including Penguins captain Sidney Crosby. Alex Ovechkin, Martin Brodeur and Henrik Lundqvist are the others. Winners will be randomly selected at the end of the campaign.
