2014 Penalty Free Sweepstakes
Submitted By Cheryl Podger on Thursday, December 5, 2013
The Hockey Development Centre for Ontario, in partnership with its member associations and program sponsors, is pleased to announce the official launch of the 2014 Penalty Free Sweepstakes contest.  The Sweepstakes is a provincial safety initiative created to foster fair play, skills, safety and sportsmanship in amateur hockey throughout Ontario.

The Penalty Free Sweepstakes encourages and rewards amateur hockey teams for staying out of the penalty box and has generated a positive response from all ages and levels of amateur hockey in Ontario.  Statistics indicate that teams who have entered the contest have either won or tied their games, demonstrating that fair play and good sportsmanship is not only rewarding but can substantially increase the chance of being successful on the ice.

To further promote the Sweepstakes, the 2014 Penalty Free Most Valuable Player Award will be held in conjunction with the Sweepstakes prize draw.  The MVP Award will recognize eleven individual players who embody the values of the Penalty Free Sweepstakes – skills, safety and sportsmanship. 

A total of 17 sponsorship partners will be supporting this year’s initiative by contributing valuable prizes to amateur hockey teams in Ontario that play a penalty free game during the contest period.  

The Penalty Free Sweepstakes is supported by former NHL and Team Canada member Paul Henderson, Hockey Night in Canada host Ron MacLean and former Women’s National/Olympic team member and 2013 Hockey Hall of Fame Inductee Geraldine Heaney.
