--January 15, 2015. The Canadian Museum of History is proud to announce that it has acquired the world’s oldest known ice hockey stick. Known as the Moffatt stick, it was hand hewn in the 1830s in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, from a single piece of sugar maple.

It will be featured in the Canadian History Hall, opening on July 1, 2017. “...
