The NHL has announced that Canadian rockers Nickelback will perform at the league's post-season awards show, the NHL Awards. The band will play twice on June 20th at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas.

"As diehard hockey fans, we can never get enough of the NHL, even when we're on tour. And there is nothing more exciting for hockey fans than the playoffs," said frontman Chad Kroeger. "The NHL Awards is the culmination of celebrating the best players and moments the season has produced. We're honored and humbled to perform at the 2012 NHL Awards in Las Vegas."

This isn't the first time Nickelback have honored their native country's most beloved sport. The group also performed at the 2002 NHL Awards in Toronto.
