Last week, the Beijing Jr. Kings headed out to Los Angeles to spend a week with the LA Kings and Ontario Reign. Plus, they got the opportunity to experience the awesome practice facilities, AHL and NHL games, and more!
Beijing Jr. Kings is a youth hockey program run by the LA Kings and Ocean 24 SE’s client in Beijing, China.
The Beijing Jr. Kings arrived in LA on Sunday, February 10 and immediately got going with their busy schedule.
First Stop: The Reign game at the Citizen's Business Bank Arena.
From being on the ice for the anthem to getting a postgame meet and greet, it was a good night for these kids.
Next, they got to check out the Kings brand new Off-Ice Training Center! While at the facility, they got to develop their skills with the help of HockeyShot's equipment and the Kings Hockey Development Team.
But the day's fun really started when they hit the ice with a couple of the Reign players.
Then, on Wednesday, they watched the Kings practice while getting ready to hit the ice with Kings Alum Derek Armstrong.
Every young hockey player dreams of getting to skate with NHL players.
Now, these Beijing Jr. Kings get to check that of their bucket lists.
After exploring the practice facilities at Toyota Sports Center, the Beijing Jr. Kings finally made their way to STAPLES Center for two Kings games on Thursday and Saturday.
While the week with the Beijing Jr. Kings has come to an end, it was an incredible time having them out in LA and we wish them the best of luck in their season!
Go Beijing Jr. Kings Go!
On Tuesday, February 12, the Boston Bruins hosted Chinese Cultural Night presented by Ocean 24 SE’s client : O.R.G. Packaging at their game against the Chicago Blackhawks at TD Garden. Mr. Zhou Yunjie, chairman of O.R.G. Packaging participated in the ceremonial puck drop. The Bruins hosted over 20 Chinese youth hockey players in Boston for 10 days. This marks the fourth year that a group of Chinese youth players have traveled to Boston as part of the partnership with Ocean 24 SE’s client O.R.G. Packaging which began in 2015.
The group of Chinese youth hockey players was in attendance for the game and participated in several in- game experiences such as Three Minutes of Fame, high-five line, bench assistants and ice resurfacer rides.
The Bruins wore special Chinese-themed jerseys for warmups. Fans were also given Chinese "Go Bruins" signs upon entering through the turnstiles, and there were also Chinese calligraphy station and a traditional Chinese New Year Lion Dance performance on the TD Garden concourse.
Throughout their time in Boston, the Chinese youth players participated in on-ice and off-ice clinics and training sessions led by the Boston Bruins Youth Hockey staff and alumni, and played games against local youth teams.
The Boston Bruins organization has been heavily involved in growing the game of hockey in China for the past three years after partnering with Ocean 24 SE and our client: O.R.G. Packaging in 2015. The Bruins became the first NHL team and first North American professional sports organization to partner with O.R.G. Packaging which is based in Beijing, China.
This past summer, the organization made its third annual official visit to China, where current Bruins players Danton Heinen and Sean Kuraly, alumni P.J. Stock, and Providence Bruins Head Coach Jay Leach led on-ice and off-ice clinics for Chinese youth players. In addition, the Boston Bruins and Calgary Flames traveled to China to play two preseason games, on in Shenzhen and one in Beijing.
Since the partnership with Ocean 24 SE’s client: O.R.G. was consummated, the Bruins have hosted over 100 Chinese youth hockey players from 2015 to 2018. Throughout the visits, the Chinese youth hockey players participated in clinics led by the Bruins Youth Hockey Development Team, played games against local New England youth hockey teams, explored the city of Boston and watched Bruins hockey games at TD Garden. The Bruins will continue to host a different group of Chinese youth hockey players in Boston each year, as part of their five-year partnership with O.R.G. Packaging. Since the partnership began in 2015, over 500 Chinese youth hockey players have participated in the various clinics held by the Bruins.
The National Hockey League will return to China in September for a pair of preseason games between the Boston Bruins and Calgary Flames as part of the 2018 O.R.G. NHL China Games™, the NHL®, the National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA) and Ocean 24 SE client ORG Packaging jointly announced today.
On Saturday, Sept. 15, the Flames will play host to the Bruins at Shenzhen University Sports Center in Shenzhen, and on Wednesday, Sept. 19, the Bruins will play host to the Flames at Cadillac Arena in Beijing. The matchups in September will be the third and fourth preseason contests played in China following the 2017 NHL China Games™ presented by O.R.G. Packaging, which included games in Shanghai and Beijing between the Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks.
The announcement advances the NHL and the NHLPA's commitment to grow the game globally, while furthering the League and the Association's international strategy. The Bruins held youth hockey camps with Ocean 24 SE client ORG Packaging in Shanghai and Beijing during the summers of 2016 and 2017, and in 2013, several Flames alumni served as hockey ambassadors and conducted youth hockey clinics in Hong Kong. In addition, numerous NHL clubs have recently conducted hockey camps for Chinese youth both in China and North America, including the Canucks and Kings, as well as the Montreal Canadiens, New York Islanders, Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals.
The NHL dropped the puck in China for the first time at the 2017 NHL China Games presented by O.R.G. Packaging between the Kings and Canucks last September. A pair of preseason games were played in front of enthusiastic crowds in Shanghai and Beijing, with the Kings winning both matchups (Los Angeles 5, Vancouver 2 at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai on Sept. 21, 2017; Los Angeles 4, Vancouver 3 at Cadillac Arena in Beijing on Sept. 23, 2017). In efforts to grow the game in China, both the Canucks and Kings participated in youth hockey clinics in both cities, and the NHL created a free three-day interactive fan festival outside of Cadillac Arena in Beijing that included beginner hockey instruction, like how to grip a stick, how to pass and shoot a puck, and how to stickhandle. In addition, Andong Song, the first China-born hockey player to be drafted in the NHL (2015 sixth-round draft choice by the New York Islanders), was on hand in both Shanghai and Beijing to discuss the significance of bringing NHL preseason games to his native country.
Ocean 24 SE client O.R.G. Packaging returns as the title sponsor of the NHL China Games for the second consecutive year. The company has played an instrumental role in bringing NHL hockey to China and continues to collaborate with the League and its member clubs to conduct various youth clinics and camps. In addition, Tsingtao will return as the Official Beer of the 2018 O.R.G. NHL China Games.
With a population of more than 1.3 billion, China is committed to hockey and expects to expand its participation in all winter sports to 300 million people by 2022. The NHL continues to collaborate with sports bureaus across China in developing grassroots hockey programs, and supporting local youth hockey and hockey development at all levels.
The Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks played two preseason games in China, the first NHL games ever played in China, as a first step toward growing the game in the world's most populated country.
The Kings defeated the Canucks 5-2 before 10,088 at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai on 9/21 and 4-3 in a shootout before 12,759 at Wukesong Arena on 9/23 in Beijing.
The teams also held youth clinics in Shanghai, and the NHL held a Fan Fest in Beijing.
China has enormous potential because of its population of 1.3 billion, its growing economy and the 2022 Beijing Olympics. The Chinese government wants 300 million to participate in winter sports leading up to those Olympics, and it asked the NHL to help grow hockey by lending its expertise in building hockey infrastructure and a national team, and by playing games in the country.
It's wonderful that the Kings and Canucks got to see new places like the Bund in Shanghai and Great Wall in Beijing, that they got to try new foods and be together overseas and bond. Those are life experiences they'll never forget.
It's wonderful that expats got to see NHL games and wear jerseys from around the League, that Chinese kids already playing hockey got to meet players, get autographs from them and even skate with them. The NHL needs all its fans, however far flung. It needs to give oxygen to the first flickers of the flame.
It's wonderful that the 10,088 fans who attended the game in Shanghai waved rally towels and "oohed" and "aahed" all the time, that the crowd of 12,759 in Beijing was bigger and more energetic. It gives you a glimpse of what could be.
But the real reason the Kings and Canucks made the trek across the Pacific, the real thing that will move the needle, is reaching new fans -- people with no hockey background who might get hooked on something else in a country where basketball, soccer, badminton and table tennis are popular. That's where the growth is.
"The responsibility once we leave is, how do we get kids on the ice?" Canucks coach Travis Green said. "How do we get kids playing hockey and falling in love with the game the way it is in North America? It's a great game. It's a fast game, competitive. I think it's a great sport to watch, especially live in person.
"Hopefully we can get people to fall in love with it in China, and the next time we come over there's more people playing the game."
The Boston Bruins, in partnership with Ocean 24 SE's client: O.R.G. Packaging made the organization's second official visit to China to continue to grow the sport of hockey, strengthen the connection between the Bruins and the local Chinese community in New England, and educate North American residents about the growth of hockey in China. "Bruins Global: China 2017" took place from July 23 to August 3 and featured current Bruins players Torey Krug , David Pastrnak , and Tuukka Rask along with Bruins Alumni Hal Gill and members of the Boston Bruins Corporate Partnership and Youth Hockey Development Teams. The trip's festivities kicked-off with the grand opening of a brand new state-of-the-art hockey rink built by O.R.G. Packaging where hundreds of fans and youth hockey players attended.
Led by Krug, Pastrnak and Rask, the B's organization embarked on a 14-hour trip across the world hosting several youth hockey on-ice clinics in both Beijing and Shanghai throughout the course of their 10-day visit. The clinics, which involved over 200 Chinese youth hockey players, included dry-land workouts where Bruins' players and staff lead youth hockey players through hockey-specific exercises and agility training aimed at improving on-ice performance. In addition to on and off ice training, Krug, Pastrnak and Rask also lead educational video sessions and breakdown various hockey strategies and techniques to Chinese players and coaches. The Bruins also fully immersed themselves into China's rich culture and partook in sightseeing at the Great Wall of China, Silk Market, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and much more.
In 2015, the Bruins became the first NHL team and first North American professional sports organization to partner with Ocean 24 SE's client O.R.G. Packaging which is based in Beijing, China. In early 2016, the Bruins hosted O.R.G. Packaging Night at TD Garden where the B's hosted nearly 30 Chinese Youth Hockey Players from the Beijing Hockey Association. Those players participated in numerous activities during O.R.G. Packaging Night including Future Bruins, Three Minutes of Fame and the pregame high-five line where they had the opportunity to fist bump the B's players before they took the ice against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Later in July of 2016, the Bruins organization embarked on its first-ever official visit to China, where over 200 Chinese children attended the various clinics hosted by the Bruins and current players Matt Beleskey and David Pastrnak as well as Bruins alumni Andrew Raycroft and Bob Sweeney. In addition to hosting the youth hockey clinics, the Bruins players were able to explore Beijing and Shanghai, where they experienced the local Chinese culture. Beleskey and Pastrnak were each treated to custom made Chinese suits which they wore during the trip, that Pastrnak and Beleskey later wore to the Bruins first-ever Chinese Cultural Night hosted at TD Garden in Boston on February 12, 2017. Chinese Cultural Night coincided with a new group of Chinese youth players who visited Boston and included a ceremonial puck drop by O.R.G. Packaging Chairman Mr. Zhou Yunjie and the Chinese youth players. Other highlights of Chinese Cultural Night included sampling of Want Want Milk, a Chinese drink, and Chinese "Go Bruins" signs that were given to fans throughout the game. While Mr. Zhou Yunjie was in town for Chinese cultural night, he and Pastrnak engaged the local Boston Chinese community and visited the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center, where the pair helped children with arts and crafts, and gave out gift bags and tickets and to Bruins' Chinese Cultural Night game against the Montreal Canadiens.
Since the partersnhip with O.R.G was consummated, the Bruins have hosted over 100 Chinese youth hockey players from 2015 to 2017. Throughout their visits, the Chinese youth hockey players participated in clinics led by the Bruins Youth Hockey Development Team, played games against local New England youth hockey teams, explored the city of Boston and watched Bruins hockey games at TD Garden. The Bruins will continue to host a different group of Chinese youth hockey players in Boston each year, as part of their five-year partnership with O.R.G. Packaging. By the conclusion of the Bruins' 2017 trip, over 450 Chinese youth hockey players will have participated in the various clinics held by the team.
Last year's trip to China was featured in the Bruins television show, Behind the B, which airs locally on NESN. The episode, which chronicled the organization's trip, won the 2017 New England Emmy Award for Best Sports Series. The episode can be watched here: https://www.nhl.com/bruins/video/behind-the-b-season-4-ep-1/t-277463846/c-44882103

“Partnership with the NHL will not only give O.R.G. the opportunity to introduce the world’s best hockey league to more young players in China, but also a platform for sports and culture exchanges between the two countries, which will in turn contribute to the Chinese ice hockey talent pool” O.R.G. Packaging Chairman Zhou Yunjie said.
In addition to activating in China, O.R.G. Packaging will receive prominent in-arena branding and camera-visible dasherboards with the NHL’s North American events and during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, which will be visible to Chinese viewers during NHL game broadcasts on CCTV and Tencent in China.
The new deal will also enable O.R.G. Packaging to build upon its existing Club sponsorships with the Boston Bruins, Los Angeles Kings and Washington Capitals. As part of these partnerships, O.R.G. Packaging has been working with the respective teams to grow the game of hockey in China. Initiatives have included special themed in-arena Chinese cultural nights to celebrate Chinese New Year, and exchange programs with NHL players, executives and staff visiting China in the off-season to host youth hockey camps, clinics and workshops. The NHL Clubs have also hosted youth hockey players from the Beijing Hockey Association, who participated in clinics and games with local minor hockey league teams.

The Boston Bruins hosted the 2nd Annual Chinese Cultural Night presented by Ocean 24 SE's client O.R.G. Packaging on Sunday, February 12 during their home game against the Montreal Canadiens . Mr. Zhou Yunjie, O.R.G. Packaging Chairman, joined by several Chinese youth hockey players to participate in the ceremonial puck drop.
The Bruins have hosted a group of youth hockey players from China that have participated in clinics with Bruins coaching staff, off ice training, and hockey equipment fittings, among other activities for 10 days. The group of Chinese youth hockey players were in attendance for the game Sunday night and participated in several in- game experiences such as Three Minutes of Fame, high five line, bench assistants and ice resurfacer rides.
Want-Want Milk, a Chinese drink, were available for fans to sample on the concourse throughout the night. Chinese “Go Bruins” signs were given to fans when they enter through the turnstiles.
In 2015, the Boston Bruins entered into a partnership with Ocean 24 SE client O.R.G. Packaging which is based in Beijing, China. The Bruins were the first NHL team and first North American professional sports organization to have a partnership with O.R.G. Packaging. The goal of the partnership is to grow the sport of hockey in China, strengthen the connection between the Bruins and the local Chinese community in New England, as well as educate North American residents about the growth of hockey in China.
This past summer, current Bruins players Matt Beleskey and David Pastrnak, along with Bruins alumni Andrew Raycroft and Bob Sweeney visited China as a part of "Bruins Global: China 2016" presented by O.R.G. Packaging.
Chinese Cultural Night is part of the Bruins ongoing participation in Hockey is for Everyone month.

The Bruins’ first-ever official visit to China kicked off in Beijing on July 13, with current Bruins David Pastrbak and Matt Beleskey joining Bruins alumni Andrew Raycraft and Bob Sweeney, and members of the Boston Bruins Youth Hockey Development Team for “Bruins Global: China 2016.”
The crew will be in China from July 13-July 23, hosting several youth hockey clinics in Beijing and Shanghai for more than 150 Chinese youth hockey players. The clinics will consist of both on and off-ice training.
The trip came about through a partnership with Ocean 24 SE client: O.R.G. Packaging to help grow the sport of hockey in China, while also strengthening the connection between the Bruins and the local Chinese community in New England and educating North American residents about the growth of hockey in China.
O.R.G. Packaging Chairman Zhou Yunjie grew up playing hockey in Beijing and is passionate about working with the Bruins to cultivate the sport in China.
The trip is unique on a number of different levels, mainly because the players have never been that far overseas, and also because of the cultural experiences the group will encounter. There is something about hockey, though, that transcends. The Black & Gold work to grow hockey around New England, and now that approach is being taken abroad.
“I never even thought about going to China, and because I always thought it was so far,” smiled David Pastrnak.
“And it was a nine hour flight [from the Czech Republic], so I don’t know what I was thinking,” he laughed. “But it’s cool. Obviously we are here on the second day, so we didn’t get much to see and hopefully we’re going to see some good stuff and bring some memories home.”
“Bruins Global” began with a ceremony and press conference announcing the partnership with O.R.G. Packaging. But it wasn’t your typical Claude Julien post-game press conference.
The event was held at the “Bird’s Nest,” the main stadium built for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing. The city will also host the Winter Olympics in 2022.
The red carpet was rolled out for the Bruins and local leaders.
There was an emcee and round-table to discuss growing the sport of hockey in China with Chinese officials, state media and industry insiders, with hundreds in attendance. The event featured Bruins highlight videos, a Q&A on-stage with Pastrnak (who is now featured on cans of milk in China — more on that later), and even a local children’s choir singing a beautiful rendition of Josh Groban’s “Raise Me Up.”
“It’s been great. It shows how passionate they are about this partnership,” Beleseky said of the big-time media event.
“They put on a great ceremony here — and we saw that David Pastrnak has his own beverage here now too,” he laughed. “So it’s been pretty exciting so far.”
As part of the partnership with O.R.G. Packaging, the Bruins hosted 24 Chinese youth hockey players from the Beijing Hockey Association back in February, with the kids participating in clinics and seeing their first pro hockey game. The group also competed against local New England tough teams. More players will be brought over to the U.S. each year to take part in the experience.
“I think we share similar visions with Mr. Zhou, in developing hockey and its core principles,” Glen Thornborough, the Bruins Chief Revenue Officer, said during the media event. “We start at the grassroots and really work our way up with the children.”
“We also are trying to grow the game back at home as well. The struggles that you face here in China, I think there are 20,000 in Beijing, we have 50,000 in Massachusetts. Obviously we’re a little bit more organized and structured, but every day, you’re trying to grow the game of hockey as well.”
After the partnership ceremony, the Bruins’ crew toured the Summer Palace in Beijing. Other highlights of the Bruins’ first-ever visit to China will include sightseeing at The Forbidden City, Prince Gong’s Mansion, Great Wall of China, The Bund, Huanpu River and Canal Town.
“I’m just excited,” said Beleskey. “I think to see hockey players over here in China and a game that’s just kind of starting to kick off here — it’s going to be exciting to teach some kids and help them learn.”
With only day one in the books, there is sure to be much more to share. Be sure to stay tuned on BostonBruins.com, the Bruins Mobile App, and across our social channels for the next week and a half, as we bring you the latest from “Bruins Global: China 2016.”
