Mississauga, Ontario -- Today, Energizer Canada, the National Hockey League Players' Association and the National Hockey League® have announced an agreement to make Energizer the Official Battery of the NHL and NHLPA in Canada.
The program will encompass activation across television, the NHL.com Network, in-arena branding, national consumer promotions and events marketing.
