BC Hockey Hall of Fame seeks memorabilia

Organization endeavours to create new exhibit; Powell River Regals were inducted in 2017

BC Hockey Hall of Fame is creating a new exhibit showcasing BC’s rich and diverse hockey history.

With the onset of COVID-19, the organization was forced to cancel its annual summer induction event, but is taking the  opportunity to shift focus and search for old artifacts such as jerseys, pucks, sticks, equipment, programs and photos that tell the stories of the game in the province, which are needed to create the exhibit.

“Our province has such a rich hockey history” stated BC Hockey Hall of Fame board chair Jim Hughson in a media release. “This is the perfect opportunity for us to enhance our Hall of Fame and we’re excited to see what interesting pieces of history we can gather from around the province.”

Themes and sections being considered include Vancouver Canucks history, historical hockey leagues in BC, BC women’s hockey, indigenous hockey in the province, BC’s championship teams and influential people in BC’s hockey history. The hall of fame is asking anyone who has items they are willing to donate or lend to call 1.778.559.3263 or email executive.director@bchhf.com.

Located in Penticton, BC Hockey Hall of Fame exists to honour the past, celebrate the present and inspire the future of hockey in the province. The hall was established in 1994 and has celebrated more than 130 inductees in the categories of Player, Official, Builder and Team. Former players inducted include Steve Yzerman, Mark Recchi, Scott Niedermeyer and Joe Sakic; former teams include the 1997 Allan Cup Canadian Champion Powell River Regals.
