Feb. 19 | Salute To Officials

Officials In Action

During the week, 20 NHL games in American cities will offer two young officials the chance to meet the NHL officials working the particular contest prior to the game and then stay to watch those NHL officials in action.

Daily Challenge

USA Hockey's Salute to Officials Day as part of Hockey Week Across America is dedicated to recognizing the many officials across the country who help players, both young and old, play our great game. Say thanks to your local officials today!

Check our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for ways to get involved with the day's activities!
