Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame helps bring NHL’s United by Hockey Mobile Museum into classrooms across Canada

Collaborating to amplify the stories of diverse ice hockey legends, Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame (CSHoF) and the National Hockey League (NHL) have created a free educational experience for Canadian hockey fans to enjoy. Centered around five Canadian trailblazing Order of Sport recipients inducted for the sport of ice hockey -- Herb Carnegie, Angela James, Manny McIntyre, Willie O’Ree, and Bryan Trottier -- this partnership will extend the United by Hockey experience beyond the mobile museum.

Accessible on CSHoF’s web-based Beyond the Win Education Platform at www.beyondthewin.ca/unitedbyhockey, the collaboration shares photos, artefacts and video clips of the Canadian ice hockey icons and connects visitors to education programs and resources that highlight their stories.

“We are excited to see the celebration of diversity in hockey extend through this partnership, by providing an opportunity for individuals and classrooms to learn more about minority Canadian hockey trailblazers featured in our United by Hockey Mobile Museum,” said Jeff Scott, NHL Vice President, Community Development & Growth.

Sharing the stories of Canadians who have received Canada’s highest sporting honour – the Order of Sport, which marks their induction into CSHoF, and connecting youth to the lessons of their journeys, is what is at the foundation of CSHoF’s education mandate.

Cheryl Bernard, CSHoF President and CEO is excited about the partnership: “We have worked extensively to build out an education platform that connects youth to the lessons of our Hall of Famers’ journeys, and with partners like the NHL, it is truly an honour to help to amplify some of the stories of diverse athletes and builders and to connect members of the community – particularly youth - to pieces of their journey”.
