Working for the Weekend

Easily one of our favorite weekends of the year. And this article pretty much sums it up.

"Hockey Weekend Across America has been a success because of the vast participation of the hockey community -- from those in our grassroots programs across the country to the NHL and its teams," said USA Hockey Executive Director Dave Ogrean.

The nationwide initiative was created by USA Hockey in 2008 to engage the hockey community in celebrating the game at all levels and exposing the sport to new fans. Each of the three days associated with event has a theme, including "Wear Your Favorite Hockey Jersey," sponsored by, on Friday; "Try Hockey Day," sponsored by the NHL, on Saturday; and "Celebrate Local Hockey Heroes," sponsored by Liberty Mutual Responsible Sports, on Sunday.

There's a whole lot more where that came from. Be sure to read the rest. 

HWAA continues to build grassroots interest in U.S.
