Hockey is on the rise in Canada, according to a new poll.
In the latest installment of the NHL’s Hockey Prospectus survey, the number of people aged 18 to 34 who play the sport has grown by a whopping 40 per cent in just one year.
And according to the latest survey, Hockey Canada and Hockey Canada Plus are both up by more than 10 per cent from last year.
In other words, hockey is in high demand in Canada.
“We are seeing a real positive trend with the sport, with both the popularity of the game and the interest in it,” said Dan LeBlanc, Hockey’s senior vice-president and director of sports research at Nielsen.
“The growth in participation is very exciting, and it’s good for the game overall.”
A survey of 1,400 Canadians conducted by Nielsen in November 2017 found that hockey participation is up by nearly 30 per cent compared to the same time last year, and that the average age of players is up 10 years.
In fact, the average participation rate for hockey players is now at nearly 60 per cent, up from the previous high of 59 per cent.
The survey found that about one-third of people in Canada play hockey.
That’s up from just under 30 per% last year and one-quarter of people playing in the NHL.
This represents a huge jump from just five years ago, when only one-in-ten people in the country played hockey.
LeBlanc said hockey has also become more popular in the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, with the two largest markets in Canada experiencing an increase in participation.
The trend is evident in the ratings for Hockey Canada, which now ranks fifth in the league.
LeBlanche is confident that the growth of hockey participation in the province of British Colombia and the growth in the popularity and popularity of Hockey CanadaPlus are the main reasons for the ratings improvement.
“The ratings are the only reason for the increase in the number,” LeBlanch said.
“They’re the only thing that really explain why the ratings have grown so much.
The ratings are growing because of the interest and the excitement of the sport.”
The hockey popularity has also been boosted by the growth and popularity in other sports.
Hockey Canada’s participation rate in the United States rose by 17 per cent last year compared to this year.
For instance, the rate for the NHL was up by 16 per cent and the rate of NHL Plus by 18 per cent over the last year alone.
And the popularity is even growing in the hockey world.
While hockey has always been a Canadian sport, LeBlanse said it has been gaining popularity in the U.S. and Canada in recent years.
“It’s great for us to see hockey in the US,” Leblanc said.
“With the popularity in Europe and in the rest of the world, hockey has become more mainstream.
We’re seeing it in the top leagues in Europe, and in Canada it’s gaining more traction.”
The survey also found that Canada has been growing the fastest in the world when it comes to sports-related tourism.
The average number of visitors to Canada each year is now more than twice that of the United Kingdom.
That number has doubled in the last two years and the U,K.
now accounts for nearly two-thirds of all sports-tourism arrivals to Canada.
This increase in activity has been fueled by two factors: the growth or popularity of professional hockey and the growing popularity of ice hockey.
Leblanse said that the popularity for professional hockey has been especially good, with an average of more than 30,000 people per game in 2017.
Hockey Plus is up significantly from last years average of about 15,000.
And that’s just the beginning of what’s happening in Canada with regards to the NHL, Leblanche said.
There are now more NHL players playing than ever before in Canada and more than 40 NHL teams, which is nearly double the number that played in 2016.
And, Lebrea says the popularity has grown even more for ice hockey, with ice hockey playing more than 60 per year in 2017 and more players than ever playing the sport.
“In the last few years, ice hockey has exploded, and I think the hockey game is now playing a bigger part in the lives of Canadians than ever,” Lebreas said.
A survey conducted by the U of S-based Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) found that ice hockey is now the number one sport played in Canada among 18- to 29-year-olds.
The popularity of hockey has only grown, but the number is still increasing.
“When you look at the statistics, hockey now has an annual revenue of $2 billion,” said Tim Crampton, CPA’s director of public affairs.
“So that’s an increase of over $200 million per year.”
This is just the latest in a string of growth trends that have been reported from across the country. The NHL is
