Calumet - the winner of Kraft Hockeyville™ USA 2019 - will host the Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues for an NHL preseason game on Thursday, Sept. 26. The small town, which earned its designation as this year's most spirited hockey community in America after amassing the most votes in the online Kraft Hockeyville™ USA 2019 contest, won $150,000 in rink upgrades, $10,000 in equipment from NHLPA Goals & Dreams and the opportunity to host the NHL preseason game. NBC Sports will provide live coverage of Kraft Hockeyville USA 2019 at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
After weeks of rallying and online voting, Calumet Colosseum and its supporters showed unrivaled enthusiasm and spirit, proving why they are the most passionate hockey community in America. Ever since opening its doors in 1913, countless memories have been forged in this small, blue-collar town in the middle of Copper Country. Calumet Colosseum is the oldest in-use indoor ice arena in the world and residents look forward to implementing the upgrades needed to keep the Colosseum thriving for years to come.
