Twitter partners with NHL on rinkside seats for fan tweets in Toronto, Edmonton

Be a part of the games, even if you can't physically be there


NHL fans in Canada can now snag rinkside seats via Twitter — or, rather, their tweets can.

As of August 10th, the official NHL Twitter account (@NHL) and individual team Twitter accounts will prompt fans to send tweets and photos of handmade signs using the hashtag #NHLWarmUps.

Top tweets will then be displayed on in-arena screens in Toronto and Edmonton during warm-ups. The idea is to help “connect the fans to the in-arena experience” amid the COVID-19 pandemic, says Twitter.
