HIGHLIGHT MOMENTS OF NHL¨ HOCKEY NOW VIEWABLE ONLINE (Toronto, ON / Northvale, NJ) September 16, 2003: The NHL Hockey Archive announced the launch of its new website www.NHLHockeyArchive.com. Replacing the initial, temporary website, clients will now be able to submit their requests online through a request form that is linked to the internal work order database. New users can get an overview of the available collections and view various samples of NHL hockey from past and present.
Producers, Programmers, Creative Directors and Researchers will find a stylish new feel with easy-to-use navigation that gives basic information as well as details on what the NHL Hockey Archive is and what its collections are comprised of. The new website is intended to expand awareness among the production, broadcast and advertising industries and facilitates communication between clients and the NHL Hockey Archive. Users are welcome to submit their feedback and can sign up to receive updates on new acquisitions and special offers.
Future enhancements to the NHL Hockey Archives website will see the introduction of a research tool, with long-term plans to digitize significant parts of the collection (allowing more of the research process to be handled online).
We are pleased to be able to offer visitors an online glimpse into our extensive collection, and are confident that this site will inspire not only those producers who know and love hockey, but also those who are not yet familiar with the unparalleled dynamics of our game, says Patti Fallick, Vice President of NHL Productions.
The featured sample footage shows such unique moments as exclusive dressing room footage of the New York Rangers and Detroit Red Wings in the 1950s, Bobby Orrs famous flying overtime goal in 1970, the Pittsburgh Penguins winning their first Stanley Cup in 1991 and several highlights of the game as played today.
