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.
The Museum purchased the artifact from Mark Presley of Nova Scotia through its donor-supported National Collection Fund. It will be featured in the Canadian History Hall, opening on July 1, 2017.
