February is #HockeyIsForEveryone month

Yesterday, the NHL announced a partnership with the You Can Play Project, and designated ambassadors from each of the 30 franchise teams to promote diversity, equality, and inclusion in the sport.

The NHL has put together some wonderful stories and videos about the campaign right here - https://www.nhl.com/community/hockey-is-for-everyone - in celebration of #HockeyIsForEveryone month.

There will be theme-events happening across the league this month, including this one in my own back yard:

Penguins to host LGBTQ advocacy night on Feb. 7
"Teams will host Hockey Is For Everyone™ awareness nights honoring and recognizing hockey players of all ages from diverse backgrounds including: sled hockey players, blind players, youth boys and girls players, special needs players, and recent immigrants."
