This year seemingly all 31 NHL teams are hosting some form of “Inclusion Night” or “Pride Night” between Feb. 1 and March 5 for the league’s “Hockey Is For Everyone” campaign.
The NHL teams each handle the celebration of “Hockey Is For Everyone” differently. Some, like the Boston Bruins, have general nights embracing overall inclusion, while others like the New Jersey Devils have LGBT-specific Pride Nights.
Each team has also handled the promotion of their nights differently. Those same Devils have been outwardly unabashed about promoting LGBT Pride, while you have to dig deep to find anything from some teams like the Detroit Red Wings and the Philadelphia Flyers (who didn’t do much last year, either).
Proceeds from most or all of these nights go to You Can Play, which aims to curb homophobic behavior in sports.
