The NHL has been a cultural mainstay for more than a century. Still, the public perception of hockey never quite achieved that of the NFL, NBA, or MLB.
Tapped to reimagine the fan experience and ignite a broader fan base, we developed the Winter Classic, an outdoor stadium event with a return to the games’ roots of “boys on a lake”. Shining a spotlight on the incredible athleticism, drama, and beauty of the sport, this premier annual event ushered in a new era for the league.
From there, we revamped the digital expression and expansion of fan engagement, creating a vibrant digital destination and hub for fans across the country.
