SEVENTH NHL MASCOT SHOWDOWN PRESENTED BY UPPER DECK FEATURING 28 NHL MASCOTS, INCLUDING LOCAL FAVORITE, CHANCE™ COMES TO LAS VEGAS

28 NHL Mascots™ to Face Off in Three Days of Friendly but Fierce Competition at 2022 Truly Hard Seltzer NHL Fan Fair™

The 2022 Truly Hard Seltzer NHL Fan Fair™ at the Las Vegas Convention Center West Hall will be the site of the seventh NHL Mascot Showdown™ presented by Upper Deck as part of the 2022 Honda NHL® All-Star Weekend, Feb. 3-6, in Las Vegas. Fourteen Western Conference mascots, led by the Vegas Golden Knights’ own Chance™, will face fourteen Eastern Conference mascots, guided by Iceburgh™ from the Pittsburgh Penguins, in three days of friendly but fierce competition.

 

The NHL Mascot Showdown™ presented by Upper Deck is one of the most anticipated events at the 2022 Truly Hard Seltzer NHL Fan Fair™, the official fan festival of the 2022 Honda NHL® All-Star Weekend. Twenty-eight NHL Mascots™ (not every NHL team has its own mascot) will showcase their hockey skills and athletic prowess, offering family-friendly fun for fans of all ages. For the seventh time, NHL in-arena host Mike Todd will handle play-by-play duties for each event. Each competition will be preceded by a Mascot Parade to the rink followed by a ceremonial puck drop and mascot group photo. Two lucky young fans in attendance will be selected to lead the parade.

 

“We are excited to bring puck fans of all ages together to experience the NHL Mascot Showdown like never before,” said Jodi Wasserman, Vice President of Marketing at Upper Deck. “Throughout the weekend we will be offering a variety of fun, family-friendly activities including Box Hockey, Pack Wars, Mascot BINGO, and more! Visit the Upper Deck Rink or Booth for a full schedule of events.”

 

“We’re thrilled to be working with Upper Deck this year for the seventh NHL Mascot Showdown,” said Dave McCarthy, NHL Group Vice President, Consumer Products. “Together, we plan to create great memories for our fans attending NHL Fan Fair and the mascots are thrilled to represent their teams as they compete for the championship trophy in this year’s competition.”

 

A ticket is required for entry into the 2022 Truly Hard Seltzer NHL Fan Fair™. Tickets for each day are available in advance at NHL.com/FanFair at $15 for adults and $12 for youth, seniors, college students and members of the military. Children three years of age and under will be admitted free of charge. All tickets are subject to applicable fees.
