Those who have had the good fortune to visit the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto can attest to the thrill of spending hours upon hours being immersed in so much puck history.
For those who have not yet made the trek, some of the hall of fame’s wares will be making the trek west as a Hockey Hall of Fame exhibit will be staged in Kelson Hall, downtown at St. Paul Street and Third Avenue, from May 26 to June 4.
The Hockey Hall of Fame will showcase its most prized artifacts and trophies in Kamloops, something that is usually only available to fans who visit the hall of fame in Toronto. The exhibit will have one-of-a-kind experiences, including Aboriginal Hockey, and have displays honouring Blazers’ alumni, including Scott Niedermayer and Jarome Iginla.
There will also be trophies and other items from each of Canada’s three major junior hockey leagues — Western, Ontario and Quebec — and from the World Championship (happening now through May 28 in Finland and Latvia) and the NHL.
In addition, fans can engage with interactive exhibits and check out the hockey history in the Tournament Capital.
Admission is free.
