One hundred years of Hockey Canada. That’s quite an accomplishment.
Today is the official birthday of the organization which promotes and governs Canada’s game. Now known as Hockey Canada, it was created as the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association on December 4, 1914.
Hockey Canada has been marking the occasion for months, with school programs and Canadian Tire Heroes of Play, a celebration of individuals across the country who have contributed to the success of the sport.
And there’s the 100-year jersey, a sweater worn by all of Canada’s national teams in the current season of international play.
So happy birthday, Hockey Canada. Here’s to another 100 years of fast fun on the ice.
