In 2017, the NHL will conduct a year-long Centennial celebration that will feature a variety of ceremonies, recognition, observances and special events that will highlight 100 years of NHL hockey.

3. The Masters - Augusta, Georgia
While fans come to see golfers, it's the Augusta National Golf Club itself that's the top attraction. It's a perfect time of year with all the flowers and azaleas. This is the golf Mecca. You'll want to experience the drama as Jordan Spieth is looking to bounce back from his epic back 9 collapse in 2016. Securing tickets and accommodations for the Masters can be difficult so plan this golf trip far in advance!
4. Oilers Now Road Trip - Las Vegas
Join Oilers Now host Bob Stauffer in Nashville for an exciting hockey road trip! We'll be heading to Las Vegas for the Oilers first ever game in Sin City.
5. 2017 Presidents Cup
For more than 20 years, the best players from around the world have come together to compete for the prestigious Presidents Cup. Presidents and Heads of State have served as Honorary Chairmen. Countries like Australia, Canada, Korea, South Africa and the United States have welcomed the global competition, which has crowned the U.S. Team as champions in nine of the 11 events.
In September, fans will have the opportunity to visit one of the nation's top courses, in one of the world's largest metropolitan areas to stand front row as an International Team led by Nick Price will arrive ready to avenge its incredibly narrow 2015 defeat. U.S. Team Captain Steve Stricker will face monumental pressure as he tries to continue the U.S. Team's success on home soil.
