To some hockey is just a game. To others of us it represents something much more. We feel a special connection to the game, its cultures and its traditions.
These days there is unprecedented coverage and accessibility to the game – especially the NHL – like never before. But there are so many cultures and narratives to be told. There are “Journeys Into” the teams, games, players, “builders of the game”, buildings and broadcasters of the past. There are also narratives that come from places far away from the daily scores, standings and transactions.
They may come from the Forum, the Gardens, the Olympia or the Old Garden (let’s not forget the Stadium) to Johnny Bower. Or perhaps from Hockey Night in Dixie, Howie Meeker or the Pond Hockey Championships.
Journeys into Hockey is about explorations into hockey’s offbeat, off the beaten path, overlooked and forgotten.
So, hello to hockey fans in Canada, the United States and beyond. We’re so glad you’re here. Let’s Journey together.
