THE WHALERS HOCKEY TRADITION CONTINUES!

Hartford Whaler Nation was created to continue the tradition of Whale hockey in Hartford -- the New England Whalers, the Hartford Whalers and the CT Whale --  through these four initiatives:

 

  • Community Relations: Continue pro hockey's most ambitious community relations and charitable outreach program to aid and assist those in need in the Greater Hartford area. 
  • Youth Hockey Outreach: Support and promote amatuer hockey in Connecticut to help the sport grow and flourish in the Nutmeg State.
  • Whale Hockey Legacy: Honor and celebrate the rich history and tradition of Whale Hockey via special events, innovative marketing, a strong online presence and the Whale Alumni.
  • Major League Hockey: Keep the spirit of major league hockey alive with the goal of rebuilding the Greater Hartford market into an "NHL-ready" hockey environment.

Hartford Whaler Nation is a community outreach program managed by Mark Willand.
