The NHL teamed with Coors Light (the official beer of the NHL®) and TEAM Coalition to promote responsible drinking at the 2016 NHL Draft™ Day Fan Fest at Canalside Buffalo on Friday, June 24, 2016. Prior to the NHL Draft™ held next door at First Niagara Center, 136 NHL fans made the pledge never to drive drunk, always to have a designated driver and never to provide alcohol to anyone under 21. “Make the Right Pick. Get Home Safe.” was the message.
Hockey fans added their names to the Responsibility Puck – an 8-foot replica of an official NHL puck – to demonstrate their commitment to keeping the penalties on the ice and off the roads. Every fan who made the pledge and signed the puck had the opportunity to receive a souvenir photo.
All responsible fans were entered to win a prize pack – including a $50 Shop.NHL.com gift card and branded items from Coors Light and TEAM Coalition – proving that Responsibility Has Its Rewards®.
Drunk driving prevention is the top priority for TEAM Coalition and all its 24-member organizations, which include the NHL and MillerCoors.
