Hockey Day in Canada 2013Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada is back on Saturday, February 9, 2013 to bring the country together through community events, on-ice activities, and of course plenty of hockey action as Canadian NHL teams face off.

Scotiabank is hosting three main programs in conjunction with Hockey Day:

Virtual High Fives

Fans are encouraged to post a picture of their Best High Five Moment on the Scotia Hockey Club Facebook page (for inspiration, check out the High Five Series that my pals Vancouver is Awesome have kept up). Between Friday and Saturday, Scotiabank will randomly select 5 photos and those fans will get a personalized video message from an NHL alumni live from Peterborough.

Tweet with Lanny McDonald

On Saturday, February 9th, between 11:am and 12:00pm (Pacific) Scotiabank will be hosting a live tweet chat on @ScotiaHockey, whereby fans can ask questions to Lanny McDonald! Fans can either ask questions on Twitter or on Facebook but they need to use the tag #askLanny.

High Five Program

More high fives! This time, it’s an interactive gesture with the Scotiabank High Five to the Stanley Cup Final contest. Canadian hockey fans choose their team they want to support (this is the team they are going to follow for the season. Should they wish, they have one opportunity to change their team before April 3rd). Then, every time their team scores, fans have 10 minutes to go to the app to High Five. Fans can also opt-in to receive real-time goal notifications via email or text to make this step go quickly. After their team finishes a game, fans also have 12 hours to log on for a bonus High Five.

Each fan’s High Fives logged through the app counts as a contest entry and each week a random winner will be selected to win two tickets to any NHL game of their choice. On June 10th, one grand prize winner will be chosen who will receive a VIP experience for two to a Stanley Cup Final Game. Contest is open until June 9th, 2013 and is open to all Canadian residents.

    I have really enjoyed watching Hockey Day in Canada on the CBC. I hadn’t realized how much Scotia Bank supports so many different communities through hockey. It is very inspiring to hear how the Right to Play sponsors those communities in need, giving adults the opportunity to mentor the young ensuring a better quality of life for everyone. Hockey has proven to be Canada’s game bringing all Canadian’s together in a positive joyful way. I would love this win prize package and would wearing it proudly to show my support for such a strong Canadian tradition.
