NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and NHL Players' Association executive director Don Fehr expressed their gratitude for the Future Goals program's teachers, students and volunteers as part of its #GiveThanks initiative Wednesday.
"On behalf of the NHL family, I'd like to thank … teachers, students, volunteers for all of your participation in the Future Goals program," Commissioner Bettman said. "Education is so important, and we're glad hockey can be a part of it."
The NHL and NHLPA teamed up to create Future Goals, a program committed to sparking student interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) topics, in 2014. Future Goals created the Hockey Scholar curriculum that helps students with the real-world application of science and math through hockey.
