Cold Power The New Force Behind The Ice Blacks

1 July 2002

Cold Power has announced its sponsorship of the first international ice hockey series of the year, featuring the New Zealand Men’s Ice Hockey team. The Cold Power International Ice Hockey Series will see the Ice Blacks battle it out against the Canadian Moose, in the best of four games.

The Cold Power International Ice Hockey Series gives Kiwi fans a rare chance to see their national team in full action. The Ice Blacks spend most of the year playing overseas in the International Ice Hockey Federation’s World Championship Programme.

Graeme Glass, President of the New Zealand Ice Hockey Federation, says that with a win in last year’s New Zealand series against the Moose, he is confident that the Ice Blacks will rise to the challenge. “The Moose always put up strong competition, but this year the Ice Blacks are a lot stronger so we are hoping for a series win this time around.”

The first game of the Cold Power International Ice Hockey Series will be held on Auckland on 6 July, with the second game being played in Christchurch. The third and fourth games will be played in Queenstown as part of the Lindauer Queenstown Winter Festival programme.

The Cold Power International Ice Hockey Series will be the Canadian Moose’s fourth time in New Zealand. The Moose is Canada’s premier touring team and is often referred to as the Harlem Globe Trotters of Ice Hockey.

The Cold Power series is the Ice Blacks only international series being played in New Zealand this year. However there are plans for several international tests next year against Turkey and Luxembourg, who the Ice Blacks have beaten in previous matches.

Mary Beth Robles, General Manager of Colgate – Palmolive New Zealand, the makers of Cold Power, says the company is proud to be the power behind the Ice Blacks series. “The Ice Blacks and Cold Power make for a perfect partnership as both are ‘experts in the cold”, she says. “The series is sure to provide lots of exciting action packed fun for ice hockey fans and novices alike.”

Colgate-Palmolive New Zealand is the wholly owned subsidiary of the New York listed Colgate-Palmolive Company. It is a leading global consumer products company specialising in oral health care, personal care, household and fabric care and pet nutrition. Colgate-Palmolive’s products are sold in over 200 countries and include internationally recognised brands such as Colgate, Palmolive, Ajax, Cold Power, and Fab.
