“We are extremely proud to see the great work of our talented Event Presentation/Production team recognized as the best in the NHL. Their entertaining and creative work consistently delivers a truly memorable game experience for our fans,” said Larry Hoepfner, Columbus Blue Jackets Senior Vice-President of Business Operations.

Judging was based on the following criteria: live camera work, PA announcer, video graphics, headshots, replays, video open/team intros, sponsor features, scoring sequence, celebration/win sequence, live elements (dance teams, bands, cheerleaders, mascot), crowd prompts, interactive feature and stats.
