A new exhibit at the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame is celebrating 100 years of hockey.
Former Winnipeg Jets players Ab McDonald and Joe Daley were on hand Monday for the official opening of 100 Manitoba Hockey Moments.
McDonald’s first goal in Winnipeg Jets WHA history and Daley’s three AVCO cups are two of the featured moments in the exhibit’s 100 hockey moments.
As part of the exhibit, a My Manitoba Hockey Moment wall is featured, landing the seven- and eight-year-old Corydon Comets, members of a local hockey team, as the first to add their moments to the wall.
Also on display is a collection of Stanley Cup rings spanning seven decades, including those of McDonald, Brian Engblom, Dave Semenko, Mike Keane and Jonathan Toews. Olympic medals, the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Trophy and the Avco Cup are a few of the other attractions. It will also soon include Terry Sawchuk’s goalie mask on loan from the Hockey Hall of Fame.
100 Manitoba Hockey Moments is on in the Sport for Life Centre, 145 Pacific Avenue, from December 1 to June 7, 2015. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for seniors (55+) and children (12 and under).
