With the final home opener for the 2020-21 Maritime Junior Hockey League (MHL) season complete, Honda MHL Thank You Week has come to a successful end. The league-wide initiative was conceived as a way to say thank you to frontline workers for their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. Honda Atlantic came aboard as the title sponsor of the MHL’s return to rinks across the Maritime provinces. Specially designed jerseys were worn during each of the MHL’s twelve home openers, most with a profession of a frontline worker in the name bar. Once the design was complete, the league worked with Wingman Sports Corporation to produce the jerseys. They were popular in every market, with jersey auctions held by each team.
On game day, a special Honda MHL Thank You Week video was played in each rink that was capable, followed by the ceremonial puck drop including a local representative of Honda Atlantic.
Thank you to everyone who helped make Honda MHL Thank You Week a huge success, to frontline workers for all of your efforts which inspired this MHL event, and to the fans for your unwavering support.
