The NHL has had a busy marketing week, and are ramping up for a great weekend.
On Tuesday the league released the Trailer for their new series partnered with GoPro, showing the game (or in Season 1’s case, practice) from the players perspectives.
This video features some of the leagues best players showing off their skills with their skates, sticks and gloves.
This has potential to be one of the most exciting technological advances in sports, since maybe ever.
This weekend is the leagues almost annual All-Star game, in Nashville, TN, this time with a brand new twist.
The game will feature 4-teams, one from each division, and have 3 mini games of 20-minutes a piece.
Game 1 – Team A vs. Team B
Game 2 – Team C vs. Team D
Game 3 – Winner of Game 1 vs. Winner of Game 3
The winners of Game 3 will get $1M.
But the biggest part of these games is that it will be 3-on-3 hockey. Lots of open ice, lots of fast paced play, and, as should be expected in All-Star Games, lots of potential for goals.
Yet the best part for most of us on All-Star weekend will happen Saturday night, during the Skills Competition. It will feature six-events:
– Fastest Skater
– Breakaway Challenge (No rules apply)
– Accuracy Shooting
– Skills Relay
– Hardest Shot
– Shootout (Shootout rules apply)
