NHL Grand Prize Winners

TEAM Coalition and the National Hockey League are supporting the designated driver programs at NHL arenas every season with a special incentive called the Responsibility Has Its Rewards (RHIR) sweepstakes. Fans who register to be a designated driver pledge to not drink alcohol, drive their friends and family home safely, and ensure that everyone always buckles up.

At the end of the season, one Designated Driver for the Season from each team is selected. One Grand Prize winner is selected from the Designated Drivers for the Season and will receive a trip for two (2) to the next season’s NHL® All-Star Game. The All-Star Game trip includes two (2) tickets to the game, round trip airfare, and hotel accommodations (if necessary).

A first prize for the RHIR sweepstakes is also awarded. The remaining Designated Drivers for the Season who did not win the trip to the NHL® All-Star Game are qualified to win the first prize. The first prize winner will receive two(2) tickets to a regular-season home game in the following season.

Entrants for the Responsibility Has Its Rewards sweepstakes were all NHL fans who pledged to be the designated driver for their friends and family at an NHL arena during the regular season. Entry was also available online at https://rhir.org or by mail.
