The NHL teamed with Coors Light and TEAM Coalition to promote responsible drinking at the 2018 Coors Light NHL Stadium SeriesTM in Annapolis, MD. In the PreGame festivities outside Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Saturday, March 3, 2018, a total of 350 NHL fans made the pledge never to drive drunk and always to have a designated driver. “Refresh Responsibly. 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. Fans shared their digital photos and the responsibility message by posting photos on Facebook and Twitter. The 146 photos taken at the PreGame for Stadium SeriesTM were viewed 412 times, an average of 3 views per photo.
Inside Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium as the Washington Capitals earned a win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on the ice, an additional 74 fans pledged to be designated drivers at the 2018 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game. In total, 424 NHL fans refreshed responsibly.
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.
