NHL Registration Phrase

TEAM Coalition and the National Hockey League are supporting the responsible fan programs at NHL arenas every season with a special incentive called the Responsibility Has Its Rewards (RHIR) sweepstakes. Fans who register to be a responsible fan 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 Responsible Fan for the Season from each team is selected. One Grand Prize winner is selected from the Responsible Fans for the Season and will receive a trip for two (2) to the next NHL® All-Star Game. The Grand Prize trip includes two (2) tickets to the All-Star Game, round trip airfare, and hotel accommodations (if necessary).

A first prize for the RHIR sweepstakes is also awarded. The remaining Responsible Fans 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.

See Official Rules for instructions on how to enter via mail. The Responsibility Has Its Rewards sweepstakes pledge is as follows.

I promise to:

  • Never drive drunk
  • Always have a designated driver
  • Not provide alcohol to anyone under the legal age to drink alcohol
  • Always buckle up – every trip, every time
