- Nailers Care
The Wheeling Nailers have been a major piece of the Ohio Valley for over 30 years. While 36 home games each season creates lasting memories, the Nailers also take pride in the work they do away from the rink, throughout the Ohio Valley.
Player & Coach Appearances
Each season, Nailers players and coaches spend between 150-200 hours in the community. The players love connecting with children, making schools and youth programs major participators in Nailers Care. They also enjoy helping causes by raising awareness and money.
