The Father of Hockey

The battle for hockey's hall of fame.

Captain James Sutherland was a hockey pioneer who believed Kingston Ontario could be the "Cooperstown of hockey". What he unleashed was a battle over the origins of the game and where best to honor hockey's greats. Eventually two "Halls of Fame" were established, one in the hockey metropolis of Toronto, the other in Kingston Ontario. This is the battle for hockey's hall of fame!

    The Father of Hockey is a local public television program presented by WNED PBS.
