U.S. to celebrate hockey in February
The first-ever Hockey Weekend Across America, a three-day nationwide celebration of the sport of hockey, will take place February 15-17. The announcement came today from USA Hockey, the national governing body for the sport of ice hockey in the United States.

Each of the three days associated with Hockey Weekend Across America has a theme, including Friday’s Wear Your Jersey to School Day, Saturday’s Bring A Friend to the Rink Day and Sunday’s Celebrate Local Hockey Heroes Day.

“We're extremely pleased to be leading this effort,” said Dave Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey. “While we’ve set up the structure, the success of Hockey Weekend Across America will be driven by those involved in the game across the country activating programs in conjunction with the celebration.”

A special website – HockeyWeekendAcrossAmerica.com – has been established to act as the information hub for the event. It features material for download, including the event logo and poster. Additional information will continue to be added, including highlights of activities planned in conjunction with Hockey Weekend Across America from around the country.

“Our sport has a lot to celebrate at all levels and we’re looking forward to being a part of Hockey Weekend Across America,” said Gary Bettman, commissioner of the National Hockey League.

“We need to do whatever we can to gain visibility for our sport,” said Tom Anastos, commissioner of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association and president of the Hockey Commissioner’s Association. “All of us involved need to participate in Hockey Weekend Across America in some fashion to both celebrate and help grow the game.”

USA Hockey is conducting a contest for best Hockey Weekend Across America programming with the grand-prize winner receiving 25 sets of OneGoal starter equipment ($4,000 value). Additionally, five runner-up prizes of $1,000 cash will be awarded. The entry form can be obtained at HockeyWeekendAcrossAmerica.com.

Details on Hockey Weekend Across America’s Great Prize Giveaway will be unveiled in December.

NOTES: All rinks in the country will receive two printed copies of the Hockey Weekend Across America poster. Anyone may download the artwork for the poster at HockeyWeekendAcrossAmerica.com and have posters printed for use in conjunction with the event … All NHL, minor professional, NCAA Division I and III men’s and women’s, United States Hockey League and North American Hockey League teams playing at home during Hockey Weekend Across America will receive Hockey Weekend Across America pucks to utilize as part of a ceremonial puck drop to help celebrate the event ...
