Sixth annual Hockey Weekend Across America set

Saturday, 02.16.2013 / 7:35 PM / NHL Network


Friday marked the start of the sixth annual Hockey Weekend Across America, presented by CCM, an event that has grown in its scope and influence in a very short time. Spearheaded by USA Hockey and the National Hockey League, the big weekend will celebrate hockey across the country.

Each day of the festive weekend has a different theme. Friday was "Wear Your Favorite Jersey Day," when fans across the United States were encouraged to show their support by donning their prized jerseys and submitting photos on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag #HWAA.

Saturday is "Try Hockey Day," a unique opportunity for men, women and children across the nation to experience the game. With some 200 rinks nationwide hosting free clinics, thousands of people will have the opportunity to enjoy hockey. A list of participating rinks is available for those interested in being involved at HockeyWeekendAcrossAmerica.com.

On a Saturday filled with plenty of on-ice action, the NHL Network is the perfect hockey hub for fans across the United States.

It all starts at 1 p.m. ET with an Atlantic Division matchup between the Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center. It should be a spirited affair between two teams that have been among the Eastern Conference's hottest clubs this season. And with names like Crosby, Brodeur and Malkin, it also should showcase some of the game's top talent.

NHL Network's Weekes a student of the game

Monday, 11.12.2012 / 10:30 AM / NHL Network

Michael Smith - CarolinaHurricanes.com

Like so many other Canadian children, Kevin Weekes dreamed of playing in the National Hockey League.

Also like so many other Canadian children, he grew up watching Hockey Night in Canada each Saturday, a time-honored tradition going on 60 years now.

Years later, Weekes has experienced both. In a professional career spanning the better part of two decades, he played in net for seven NHL teams.

"That was my goal. That’s what I wanted to accomplish," Weekes said. "To this day, I’m eternally grateful that I was able to make it happen."

Soon after, he became the first black hockey broadcaster in NHL history, appearing on the very program with which he grew up watching.
