About Hockey Weekend Across America

Hockey Weekend Across America is an annual effort aimed at two major objectives through a weekend of events at the local and national level to promote hockey.


1. To celebrate our game and all involved in the sport throughout the nation using all means possible.

2. Provide opportunities for those who haven't played hockey to try it, resulting ultimately in more people playing our game at all levels.

Traditional Weekend Themes

In addition to the traditional weekend themes listed below, previous Hockey Weekend Across America's have included NBC's Hockey Day in America, which typically includes three NHL games broadcast on NBC and NBCSN. In 2017, the 10th annual HWAA event extended to an entire week with daily 'Salutes' to Players, Coaches, Officials and Rinks.
