Have you ever wanted to tell your favorite NHL team or the NHL League Office what you think about the state of the sport?
The NHL is offering sports fans a one of a kind opportunity to do that and much more. Just fill out this short survey to see if you qualify to become a member of our team.
Members will be contacted from time to time and asked to provide their opinion on a variety of aspects of the NHL and other sports. If you decide to join our team you could win a prize just for answering one of the surveys.
I registered yesterday. It takes a while to answer all their questions but still, I like the idea of polling fans for their opinion.
