Pfizer Consumer Healthcare, a unit of Pfizer, Inc. (NYSE:PFE) and the maker of Advil ®, the #1 selling over-the-counter pain reliever in the United States, and the National Hockey League (NHL) today announced Advil ® is an Official Partner and the Official Pain Reliever of the NHL ® and the 30 NHL athletic trainers in North America for the 2013-14 season.

“The Advil ® brand has joined the NHL family at a very exciting time,” said Dave Lehanski, Senior Vice President, Integrated Sales, NHL. “With the most ambitious series of big events in League history planned for this season – six outdoor games over 61 days – we are delivering unprecedented fan engagement while offering our partners more opportunities to activate than ever before.”

"The NHL deal provides a terrific platform for driving the launch of our new, fast acting Advil ® line,” said Brian Groves, U.S. Chief Marketing Officer at Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. “Advil ® is built to be as fast as it is tough. We see the players and the League as embodying the fast acting Advil ® promise of fast recovery from tough pain."

According to a Simmons Market Research study, NHL fans are younger, more educated, more affluent, and access content through digital means more than any other sport.
