The city of Winnipeg is going crazy for the Jets, especially after the amazing comeback victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs recently where rookie Patrik Laine scored a hat trick to help lead the team to a 5-4 victory after being down 4-0. Hockey hysteria should continue to be palpable in the city leading up to the 2016 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic™ game this weekend. And wouldn’t you know it, Upper Deck has a variety of activities planned to make the event a special one.
Leading into the games Upper Deck will be visiting a variety of hobby shops in the area and sharing some great goodies with fans through pack wars and raffles. If you live in the area, you’ll definitely want to get out to some shops this week to meet the Upper Deck team!

To help celebrate this special game, Upper Deck has prepared a special promotional set that should be available not only in shops in Winnipeg beginning this weekend, but also for shops in Edmonton! In Edmonton the 5-card set can be scored as a gift with any $20 purchase of new Upper Deck NHL® products.
A special Card 0 of red-hot rookie Jesse Puljujarvi can be scored with any 2016-17 Upper Deck NHL® box purchase. These are available only while supplies last and with limited quantities, you’ll want to score them before they are gone!
In Winnipeg Upper Deck produced a 10-card set that is available as a gift with any $20 purchase of new Upper Deck NHL® products.
A sweet Card 0 of the beloved rookie Patrik Laine can be scored with any 2016-17 Upper Deck NHL® box purchase. These are available in limited quantities and will sell out so grab these collectibles while you can!
Upper Deck will also be set up at the Spectator Plaza on Saturday and Sunday prior to the games along with Tim Hortons! We want to encourage fans to come to the games early and enjoy all that Spectator Plaza has to offer. Upper Deck and Tim Hortons will be giving out samples of the incredibly popular hockey card set for this season. Upper Deck will also have a small allotment of both the Winnipeg Jets and Edmonton Oilers 2016 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic™ sets on hand to share with fans. The most compelling activation however is Upper Deck’s personalized trading card experience. Fans can step up and have a professional photographer snap a photo of them. Moments later they will be presented with their very own Upper Deck Tim Hortons hockey card! This experience is definitely worth the short wait in line!
Hockey is back and the 2016 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic™ should be a blast! See you there!
