This year’s NHL Entry Draft saw an interesting twist.
The Philadelphia Flyers were one of the few teams that didn’t make use of an audio and/or video system to record pre-game speeches.
Instead, they went with a scripted speech from their captain, Wayne Simmonds, delivered on a giant video screen in the arena.
The Flyers also used the footage during their pre-season games to teach rookies and the public about the game.
The new format, which was first seen during a recent video-based mock draft, was designed to provide a more interactive experience than previous NHL games in that it would allow for players to communicate directly with fans via video.
This year’s draft was also a chance for the NHL to experiment with new ways to make fans interact with its games.
During the 2015-16 season, the league began allowing fans to submit a comment on video content and then play a pre-recorded video of that comment on a smartphone.
As a result, the NHL experimented with a variety of new ways for fans to interact with the games, including creating a live Twitter feed with a hashtag on it that allowed them to tweet along to games live and direct questions about specific moments.
This new approach has been embraced by NHL teams.
In the past, teams have only used pre-written responses on video, like this one from a 2015-2016 Minnesota Wild game.
But this year, they used the hashtag #NHLStream to post a prerecorded video for fans who wanted to watch the game without having to manually submit a video.
It’s not clear whether the NHL will continue using this method for future games, or if it will allow for more interactive responses to video during the post-draft period.
