In a special ceremony on Saturday (October 27), Stompin’ Tom’s “The Hockey Song” will be inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. Since its release in 1973, it’s become an anthem for hockey fans in the smallest rinks to the biggest NHL arenas.

That night, the Winnipeg Jets will play the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Scotiabank Arena. Tom Connors Jr. will receive a gift on behalf of his late father before country singer Tim Hicks plays the song live for the crowd.
