Ice Hockey and NORQAIN: precision, dynamism and excitement
As part of its partnership with the NHLPA, NORQAIN has a presence in the Lounge, interacting with all 44 members. Over the course of the partnership, several NHLPA players will participate in exclusive NORQAIN initiatives, and NORQAIN will also have a presence at joint events during the hockey season and in the off-season. The commitment of NORQAIN Board member Mark Streit, 2017 Stanley Cup winner and Swiss hockey legend, and Roman Josi, “Norris Trophy” winner and captain of the Nashville Predators has been a key factor in NORQAIN’s entry into ice hockey and in the establishment of this important alliance with the NHLPA.
About the NHLPA
The National Hockey League Players’ Association, established in 1967, is a labour organisation whose members are the players in the highest Hockey League. The NHLPA works on behalf of the players in varied disciplines such as labour relations, product licensing, marketing, international hockey and community relations, all in furtherance of its efforts to promote its members and the game of hockey. In 1999, the NHLPA Goals & Dreams fund was launched as a way for the players to give something back to the game they love. Over the past 23 years, more than 80’000 deserving children in 34 countries have benefited from the players’ donations of hockey equipment. NHLPA Goals & Dreams has donated more than $25 million to grassroots hockey programs, making it the largest program of its kind. For more information on the NHLPA, please visit www.nhlpa.com.
