LONG SAULT – The Hockey Canada Century Tour will be in South Stormont this weekend at the Long Sault Arena.

The three day long tour begins Friday displaying 100 years of Canadian hockey history.

The Century Tour will be held as part of the South Stormont Minor Hockey Association’s 2015 Jimmy MacDonell Atom Tournament.

Organizers actually moved the tournament to coincide with the hockey tour.

Nearly 400 players, as well as coaching staff and parents are expected to be in Long Sault for the 23-team atom tournament.

The Century Tour brings with it a 54 foot expandable trailer, which expands into a 20,000 square foot museum on wheels. The portable museum contains close to every piece of national hockey exploits, such as world junior gold medals as well as a synthetic sheet of ice.

The tour was launched on July 1, 2014 by Hockey Canada to commemorate its 100 year anniversary. The interactive trailer will depict a time line of milestone hockey moments, artifacts, as well as activities geared specifically for families and new fans.
