Visitors to the Calgary Stampede will have a new exhibit to visit to discover hockey history and challenge their hockey skills.

Hockey Canada and Hockey Alberta have teamed up with Hat Trick Productions to give visitors to the Calgary Stampede a hockey experience like no other. Fans will be able to test their shooting and puck handling skills at various interactive games. Along with the interactive area, many of the Hockey Canada trophies and IIHF championship trophies will be on display.

Fans will be able to visit the Hockey Alberta booth within the FanFest to get information about coaching, officiating and player programs.

Former NHL and Team Canada players will be on site to sign autographs each day from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., including Olympic gold medalists Delaney Collins and Carla Macleod of the National Women’s Team on Monday, July 7th. On Thursday, July 10th Hockey Hall of Famer, member of Canada’s 1976 Canada Cup-winning team and Calgary Flames legend Lanny McDonald will on site to greet fans as well.

Before each autograph session the participant will take part in the interactive games and post scores. This will give amateurs something to shoot for.
