Expanding League outside of North America
NHL has played games in Europe as test market
How increasing the popularity of our players will increase NHL support
NHL attracts the best players, but US is not most popular
Possible Solution
We can expand into Western Europe
Have own division to incorporate that region
More patriotism for the US market
Will also attract players playing for home country
Drawbacks to International Expansion
Players from US against the idea (similar to NFL)
Travel costs can be a major problem
May isolate the league into US, Canada, and Western Europe

2014 Athlete Popularity Trends in US
Our Goal:
Better publicize star players through various efforts including advertisements, sponsorships, TV programs, social media outreach, promotions and specials.
Our Belief:
By creating players that are iconic to youth and recognizable outside the hockey fan base we will increase our viewers and following and gain supporters of the league.
Positive reputations/ likeable athletes
Improved relations with league & NHLPA
Highlighted in Winter Olympics
"NHL is only getting hotter"
Momentum over NBA
Foreign-born players
Momentum is temporary
Keeping lives private
Reputation is put at risk
Compromising priorities
Financial Analysis
Action Plan
Costs involved vary:
-Voluntary effort by players
-Ad space
-Air space on TV networks
-Production costs
-NHL marketing team getting players on board
-Discover what promotions are best fit and to what extent they should be pursued

Right Environment
30% of league rosters are comprised of European players
25% to 35% of NHL.com traffic comes from Europe
Concerns before expanding to Western Europe
Time zone issue
Potential markets, where the sport sells
This opportunity would create an appreciation for the sport at an earlier age.
More students will aspire to play professionally
It creates revenue opportunities for Universities/colleges.
Watch players develop from an early age and create a following for athletes as they advance their careers.
Can be really costly at the high school level
Equipment, Arena
It can be difficult to convince schools to adopt a program because of limited arenas and resources.
A lot of infrastructure would be needed to add games to the current system.
