Kraft Hockeyville back for 2014

http://www.ngnews.ca/Sports/2013-12-...-rinks-alive/1

After "missing" a year due to lockout, Kraft is back sponsoring Hockeyville competition.

Grand prize includes $100,000 to improve local rink.

Quote:
A recent survey commissioned by Kraft Canada reveals the majority (91%) of Canadian hockey parents agree their local rink is the social hub of their community, yet two-thirds say these arenas are in need of repairs or upgrades. Over 90 per cent (91%) of those surveyed say their overall community would be negatively impacted if their rink were to close due to disrepair.
“Local rinks are at the heart of Canadian communities but we may run the risk of losing many of these precious centres if they are not repaired or restored for future generations,” said Jack Hewitt, vice president of marketing insight & services, kraft canada. “Kraft Hockeyville engages Canadians to preserve the spirit and passion for hockey across the nation, and that passion starts at the home rink.”

Okay, seemed like more. Didn't realize they've been doing this since '06.

It's always good to see communities get this stuff for helping out their rinks with the hockeyville stuff.

Gonna take a guess and say it comes back to NL/ Atlantic Canada. If I had to take a guess on where in NL, I'd go with Port Aux Basques or possibly Bonavista

Sprague Cleghorn.

He was a Stanley Cup winner, Hall of Famer, and one of the meanest dudes of his era.
