There's winter, spring, summer and fall, but in Canada, the "5th Season" is the hockey season, and there's no other time of year like it.
Scotiabank has done its part to help fans across Canada share their passion for the game and has taken celebrating "The 5th Season" to new levels for the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs with the Scotiabank Hockey Club, where members can join by visiting ScotiabankHockeyClub.com for an opportunity to win prizes, including a VIP trip for four to the 2017 Stanley Cup Final.
Upon joining the club, fans receive a letter from Scotiabank Teammate and Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban, explaining how it works and encouraging participation through Scotiabank Hockey Club social media channels for opportunities to earn additional ballots.
In addition to Subban, Scotiabank has enlisted other Teammates to post exclusive content in its Members Only Zone, including retired NHL players Darcy Tucker and Lanny McDonald, and Cassie Campbell-Pascall, who captained Canada to the gold medal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics and 2006 Torino Olympics.
"Hockey matters to Scotiabank because it matters to Canadians," Tucker said. "Scotiabank invites Canadians to join the Scotiabank Hockey Club to celebrate our nation's game with us all year long and earn their shot at hockey rewards and experiences. As a Scotiabank Hockey Club member, you'll not only have the chance to win some incredible prizes, but you'll also gain access to special perks like partner discounts and exclusive videos from me and your other Scotiabank Teammates. When you join the Club, you join a winning team of fans, coaches and players from coast to coast -- all united by their passion for hockey."
The year is broken up into various prizing periods, each highlighted by a unique VIP grand prize experience, such as a trip to the Stanley Cup Final, the Scotiabank NHL100 Classic featuring the Montreal Canadiens vs. the Ottawa Senators at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa on Dec. 16 or Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada. Upon logging in, members gain access to their personalized dashboard with social posts for sharing with their friends and family. Fans earn 50 ballots per day by sharing a post on Facebook or Twitter; and an additional 10 by using hashtags #The5thSeason or #ScotiaHockey, or commenting or liking a Scotiabank Hockey Club post via a synced Facebook or Twitter account. The more actions one takes, the chances of winning increases.
"Engagement is the main driver for the club," Scotiabank Director of Hockey Sponsorship, Lisa Ferkul said. "Fans have the opportunity to engage with our hockey content, share their love for the game and be rewarded for their passion."
Period Three of the program runs through 11:59 p.m. ET on May 26 with the grand prize a VIP trip to the Stanley Cup Final. For your shot to score big with Scotiabank Hockey Club, visit www.ScotiabankHockeyClub.com today for full contest rules and details.
