Claiming to be the birthplace of the NHL is a big deal. For Canadians, hockey is not just a national past-time, but a way of life and a source of shared pride; many of us live and breathe hockey, especially during the winter months, and it’s only natural that we’re proud to shout from the rooftops about our national connection to the game.
