The small town, which earned its designation as this year’s most spirited hockey community in America after amassing the most votes in the online Kraft Hockeyville™ USA 2019 contest, won $150,000 in rink upgrades, $10,000 in equipment from NHLPA Goals & Dreams and the opportunity to host the NHL preseason game.

Esso’s National Fan Campaign, “How Far Will You Go?”, Debuts During the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs

 

TORONTO (April 15, 2019) – The National Hockey League (NHL®) and Imperial Oil (Imperial), today announced a multiyear agreement naming Imperial, the Official Retail Fuel of the NHL in Canada.

 

The partnership, including a national campaign featuring Imperial’s Esso brand — in which Imperial collaborated with Hockey Canada — launched today across Canada in conjunction with the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The campaign celebrates hockey at all levels played in communities across Canada. Imperial’s television and digital feature, “How Far Will You Go?”, a key component of the campaign, captures the story of a young player’s journey from first taking to the ice to coaching the next generation. The vignette has just launched across Canada on television, in select movie theatres and in-arena at Stanley Cup Playoff games.

 

“Imperial is thrilled Esso is the official retail fuel of the NHL in Canada and we continue – as we have for many, many years – to recognize hockey’s significant place in the hearts and minds of Canadians,” said Jon Wetmore, Imperial’s Vice-President Downstream. “We share the NHL’s commitment to building healthy and vibrant communities through the sport of hockey – values held dearly by both the NHL and Imperial.”

 

“Our goal at the NHL is to introduce the game of hockey to the broadest possible audience and drive deeper engagement with our fans, especially during the Stanley Cup Playoffs – the most exciting and unpredictable time in sports,” said Kyle McMann, NHL Group Vice President of Business Development. “Imperial and its Esso brand have been synonymous with Canadian hockey culture for decades, and we look forward to collaborating on new opportunities to further the growth of hockey at all levels.”

 

In addition to the national campaign, the partnership will feature a pair of social media contests during the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Fans will have a chance to win one of two trips for four to a game during the 2019 Stanley Cup Final and one of three trips for two to the 2019 NHL Awards in Las Vegas. Contest details will be available at facebook.com/EssoCanada.

 

Imperial will leverage the partnership to showcase its Esso brand through on-site activations at the 2019 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic™ - the NHL’s premier signature Canadian event featuring the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Sask., on October 26, 2019. The agreement also includes other consumer-focused activations throughout the NHL’s regular season and in-broadcast and NHL.com media buys.

 

Imperial, a sponsor for the World Cup of Hockey 2016, is also a partner of the NHL’s seven Canadian Clubs and Hockey Canada. Imperial’s commitment to youth/community hockey is demonstrated by a record 20,000 minor hockey teams participating in Hockey Canada’s Esso Medals of Achievement program and upwards of 10 million Certificates of Participation being awarded to young boys and girls all across Canada.

NHL Schedule for Tuesday, April 16, 2019

SNEAK PEEK AT TUESDAY’S ACTION

Two series could end Tuesday, while two others could be forced to at least a sixth game as the Jets and Sharks look to pull even. The Blue Jacketsand Islanders both aim for a sweep, with Columbus aiming for their first-ever series victory and New York vying to clinch a series on the road for the first time in 25 years.

With the Blue Jackets holding a 3-0 advantage against the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Lightning, the series will mirror one of two memorable playoff feats achieved by the Kings in recent years. Either Columbus will defeat the League’s No. 1-ranked team after winning the first three games – like the Kings did in 2012 en route to winning the Stanley Cup (4-1 W vs. VAN) – or Tampa Bay will rally off four straight wins to advance – like the Kings did in 2014 en route to winning the Stanley Cup (4-3 W vs. SJS).

 

* If Columbus wins Tuesday, it would mark the fourth time in League history that a team has swept a best-of-seven series against the team with the best regular-season record.

 

* Meanwhile, the top comeback team in the NHL in 2018-19 (Tampa Bay) and winners of two of the past three Stanley Cups (Pittsburgh) will try to begin rallies achieved only four times in League history.

* Three players in action tonight have at least one goal in each of the first three games of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Vegas’ Mark Stone (6-2—8), New York’s Jordan Eberle (3-2—5) and Winnipeg’s Patrik Laine (3-1—4). Only two players in the past seven years have scored in each of their team’s first four games of a postseason: Sean Monahan with Calgary in 2017 (vs. ANA) and Patrick Marleau with San Jose in 2013 (vs. VAN).
