Well, what more can I say about the history of hockey in Hamilton, that hasn’t already been covered on this remarkable site. Everything you ever wanted to know about the history of hockey as it relates to Hamilton, Ontario Canada, can be found within these pages.
More specifically, a chronicle of the now 30-year struggle to bring a second NHL team to Southern Ontario, can be found at the Hamilton Night in Hamilton site under ‘Flights of Fancy’.
As well, I fairly recently stumbled upon another website that exists under the ‘Hockey Night in Hamilton’ moniker. The design (especially the top banner image of Hamilton as seen from the escarpment), looks great so far.
I hope you enjoy the above links. I have lived in Hamilton my entire life, but I found myself amazed at the story of the steel cities long standing love affair with this sport , as I browsed the Hockey Night in Hamilton site.
Did you know that Hamilton once had an NHL team? Did you know that one time Toronto Maple Leafs owner Harold Ballard, had agreed to overlook territorial rights in exchange for upgrades to Ivor Wynne Stadium; home of the CFL Tiger-Cats that he then owned?
