and the winners are...

HockeyNow is pleased to announce the winners and finalists of our second annual Fans’ Choice Awards. Just as their name suggests, the Fans’ Choice Awards are determined by fans across Canada, who once again showed up to vote for their hockey favourites.

The awards were created to give Canadians the chance to honour the country’s best hockey destinations, manufacturers, equipment, companies, leagues, tournaments, and schools. Over the last month, HockeyNow tallied thousands of votes cast in 20 categories – and also added some worthy candidates to our lists based on reader suggestions. And, of course, due to the abundance of top notch hockey products and organizations out there, we saw a number of tight races in several categories.

We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to recognize the winners our readers have chosen as their national and provincial favourites.

The fans have spoken. Thank you to the readers who showed their support to their top hockey picks, and our congratulations to the winners and finalists of the HockeyNow 2016 Fans’ Choice Awards.
