Aside from snow, and maybe our penchant for saying “sorry”, there’s nothing brings Canadians together quite like our shared love of hockey. We are a hockey-obsessed nation, playing, watching and commemorating hockey heroes at any chance we get. On any given day, in pretty much any city across Canada, you’ll find a restaurant or bar filled with jersey clad fans cheering on their local team.

You can bear witness our love of the game at the  The Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame. Established in 2012, The Hall of Fame celebrates all the hockey greats who call Saskatchewan home. The exhibit features a wealth of important memorabilia on display accompanied by information that will allow you to brush up on your hockey trivia. Check out the one of a kind hockey chandelier and try your hand at table hockey!  

Inductees to the Hall of Fame include the legendary Gordie Howe, five-time Olympic medalist Hayley Wickenheiser and former Toronto Maple Leaf’s forward Wendel Clark. The Hall of Fame accepts nominations from the public and new members are inducted every year at the annual ceremony and dinner. The Hall of Fame doesn’t just honour players, but all those who have contributed to the legacy of Saskatchewan hockey including coaches, officials and extraordinary locals who have contributed their life to the sport.

The Hall of Fame is open to visitors from Tuesday to Saturday from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM and admission is by donation.

The display is fittingly located inside the Innovation Credit Union i-plex arena, home to the Swift Current Broncos. Here you can watch the Broncos face off in home games with teams from Canada and the US. The arena also offers curling and free public skating, making it a great place to get a full-rounded experience of Canadian winter sports.
