NBC has really been upping it’s playoff promotions this year. The latest? A Zamboni Ice Cream truck.
The NHL on NBC and Versus is converting zambonis into ice cream trucks throughout several playoff markets. A local NHL legend will travel with the truck around the market give out free ice cream to fans throughout the first round of the playoffs.
Of course there is a catch: they will not announce where the zamboni will be revealed until the morning of the event. NBC is doing this via social media, so you must follow them on twitter or “like” them on facebook in order to find out when/where the truck will be.
It worth it though. Everyone who shows up for free ice cream will be entered to win prizes like official team hats/shirts, autographed merchandise, team jerseys, gift cards, and tickets to regular-season games next year. Also, everyone will be able to enter a sweepstakes where one lucky fan will win a trip for two to the Stanley Cup Finals. Seriously guys, you want to follow/like it.
Be on the lookout later for our official preview of the Pens series, mainly adjustments from the preview we did a little while ago.
