Stompin' Tom's 'The Hockey Song' to be inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame

 

 

Stompin' Tom Connors' iconic Canadian anthem "The Hockey Song" will be inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in a ceremony on Saturday, Oct. 27, in Toronto.

Connors' son, Tom Connors Jr., and other members of his family will be present to receive a plaque honouring the song's induction at Scotiabank Arena.

Over the years, Connors was invited to play the anthem, which models its three verses after a hockey game's three periods, at many NHL games.

Stompin' Tom died in 2013 but his music legacy continues!
