This year’s search for America’s most passionate hockey community reunites an all-star roster of partners, including the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA), National Hockey League (NHL®), NBC Sports Group, and USA Hockey. Through the program, hockey communities across the U.S. can now vie for the coveted title of “Kraft Hockeyville USA 2016” and enter for a chance to win the grand prize of hosting an NHL® Pre-Season game televised live on NBCSN and $150,000 in arena upgrades.
Jeremy Roenick – an NHL on NBC analyst and one of the leading American-born scorers in NHL history – is back again as program ambassador. “The response from communities across the country in the first year of Kraft Hockeyville™ USA was inspiring, and I am thrilled to be a part of it again in 2016,” said Roenick. “This program reflects my own passion for community and youth hockey, and has allowed me to share the important role the sport played in my life growing up in Boston, where hockey brought all of us together in a way that nothing else could.”
