Hockey Heritage North
honours yesterday's legends of Northeastern Ontario,
celebrates today's heroes
and serves to inspire tomorrow's stars.
Although Hockey Heritage North has the most extensive archive of hockey related materials outside of the Hockey Hall of Fame, it is much more than a museum; it is a state of the art conference centre too. This multi-faceted complex of over 18,000 square feet is filled with interactive experiences, audio/visual wizardry and captivating story telling. An absolutely fun place for everyone to spend the day.
The World's Largest Free-Standing Puck is situated on the grounds of Hockey Heritage North in Kirkland Lake, Ontario. Commissioned by the Hockey Heritage North Foundation and built by Northern College staff & students in 2011. It is made of steel, weighs 2 tons, is 12 ft in diameter and including its base, stands 20 ft tall.
The biggest puck in the world was conceived to raise money to build a monument to the 325 hockey players from Northeastern Ontario who according to Foster Hewitt "helped make the National Hockey League famous".
The patrons who donated to this cause are proudly displayed in the lobby of Hockey Heritage North in the Book of Names.
