The NHL has announced that it will begin a national campaign to paint the teams’ logo and colors in pumpkin.
The league announced Tuesday that the effort will be called “Pumpkin Jam,” and it will run through the 2015-16 season.
Here’s a look at the league’s pumpkin-themed campaign so far: “Our goal is to show the best of our sport by taking the game to the next level,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement.
“Pillars of our city are a beautiful backdrop for a paint job.
That’s why we’re creating this opportunity for you to paint a unique paint job to celebrate the game and our city.”
The league will launch the paint campaign on the official website at http://www.nhl.com/pumpkinjam.
This will be the first time the NHL has used pumpkin paint.
The paint will be available in the NHL Shop beginning on Wednesday, April 14.
The League is also hosting a pop-up pumpkin paint contest.
The top-rated contest, which runs through April 17, is set to be held at Staples Center on Saturday, April 25.
Winners will receive a full year of access to NHL.com and NHLPA.com.
Pumpkins are the official NHL logo.
Here is a look back at other great NHL paint jobs.
The NHL is using pumpkin as its official logo in several other ways.
