In 2019, USA Hockey's yearly nationwide initiative Hockey Weekend Across America – now in its 12th year – will expand to a week-long celebration and take place from Feb. 17-24, 2019.
“We are thrilled to expand Hockey Weekend Across America to a full week moving forward,” said Pat Kelleher, executive director of USA Hockey. “Two years ago, we commemorated the 10th anniversary of Hockey Weekend Across America with a week-long format that was received extremely well and having an entire week provides further opportunity to do some fun and creative things to celebrate and advance the sport."

Created by USA Hockey in 2008, Hockey Weekend Across America is an annual event designed to engage the hockey community in celebrating the sport of hockey at all levels and exposing the sport to new audiences.
"Hockey Weekend Across America is an opportunity to shine a light on our sport and has become a signature event the entire hockey community looks forward to each year. It's great to celebrate the game and those involved at all levels, and also give new families an opportunity to try our great game."
