The ECHL announced on Thursday that Sutton Special Risk will be the presenting sponsor of the Hockey Hall of Fame Display as part of the festivities of the ECHL’s 2014 Hockey Heritage Weekend presented by CCM. The unique displays will be featured at the Alaska Aces home games on both Friday, Feb. 7 and Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014.
“For over 35 years, Sutton has provided specialized insurance solutions to professional athletes and teams and we are proud to have the ECHL as our client,” said Greg Sutton, President and CEO of Sutton Special Risk. “We are once again excited to help celebrate this great game at the 2014 ECHL Hockey Heritage Weekend in Anchorage, Alaska.”
The unique display will make the 4,000+ mile trip from Toronto to Anchorage for the first-time ever, and will include artifact exhibits from throughout hockey history from the vaults of the Hockey Hall of Fame. Additionally, several of hockey’s most prestigious trophies will be on hand from the Hockey Hall of Fame, as well as exciting interactive hockey games for children to participate in during the festivities to heighten the experience.
“The ECHL is elated to once again work with Sutton Special Risk in order to offer our fans in Anchorage a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Ryan Crelin, ECHL Sr. Vice President of Business Operations. “Some of the treasures of the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto will be on display for the first-time ever in Alaska to help celebrate the history of hockey and the ECHL’s role as a developmental league as part of this very special weekend event.”
