Bridgestone will also honor its Hockey Saves guests from Chicago and Washington with a special, private skate session on the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic ice. According to Bridgestone, its military outreach efforts will complement a greater program the NHL is planning for the Jan.1 game.

“Hosting members of Hockey Saves at this year’s event is one small way we are able to show our appreciation for the surrounding community,” said Phil Pacsi, vice president of sport/event marketing and training at Bridgestone Americas. “The men and women of our military exemplify incredible selflessness. They are true everyday performers, and we are proud to host them as our special guests at this year’s Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.”
