The NHL will continue to make its traditional education curriculum available for free online and through a partnership with online learning provider Classical Education.
The partnership allows the NHL to offer a free online program that is available to players, coaches and officials to learn from during practice, game, and on the ice.
The program will also be available on NHL.com and other platforms that the NHL sponsors.
“We are committed to continuing to give our players and their families the tools to get the most out of their NHL career and continue to provide them with the highest level of education possible,” NHL Director of Player Development Scott Arniel said.
“The NHL and Classical Education are excited to continue our partnership to provide access to the best in traditional education in our league and throughout the NHL.”
The partnership was announced at the NHL Annual Meeting in Las Vegas last week.
The first full season of the new program is set to start in December, 2018 and is available for fans to watch online from the NHL website or through the NHL app on iOS, Android and Roku devices.
Players can learn how to read classical literature by watching a 60-minute instructional video at the beginning of each training camp or regular season.
Classical Education is also offering more than 50 hours of in-depth instruction on how to become a more efficient student.
The 2018-19 NHL season begins in mid-December.
