2013 Penalty Free Sweapstakes
Submitted By Theresa Fierheller on Tuesday, November 20, 2012
Toronto, ON: -  The Hockey Development Centre for Ontario, in partnership with its member associations and program sponsors, is pleased to announce the official launch of the 2013 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 2013 Penalty Free Messier Project Leadership Award will be held in conjunction with the Sweepstakes prize draw. The MPL Award will recognize eleven individual players who embody the values of the Penalty Free Sweepstakes – skills, safety and sportsmanship – and, in the tradition of hockey icon Mark Messier and The Messier Project, exemplify strong leadership both on and off the ice.

A total of 19 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 and Olympic team member Geraldine Heaney.
