Remembering Cecil Hart:
Surprise Visit of the Stanley Cup and Guy Lafleur

1883 t0 1924

On Thursday, December 14, 2017, a special panel was dedicated to honour Cecil Hart, the Jewish coach and general manger of the Montreal Canadiens. The celebration took place at Library and Archives Canada (LAC), an event leading to the NHL 100 Classic Game, between the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators.

The “Remembering Cecil Hart” panel was created by the Canadian Jewish Experience (CJE), a volunteer organization created to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial, by telling some of the many Jewish contributions to Canada, its growth and development. Both Hart Trophies were present at the event and a surprise visit by the Stanley Cup was appreciated by the many guests, who enjoyed meeting Guy Lafleur in person and taking photos with him. The first recipient of the Hart Trophy in 1924 was Frank Nigbor from the Sens, a fitting event to celebrate both teams ahead of the game.

The culmination of a great deal of hard work by a small and dedicated Committee led by Ms. Tova Lynch, the impressive Exhibit comprising nine inspiring panels, entitled the “Canadian Jewish Experience: A Tribute to Canada 150”, was unveiled April 2, 2017 in the lobby of a National Capital Commission (NCC) building at 30 Metcalfe Street, Ottawa, not very far from Parliament Hill. The Exhibit can also be seen and appreciated at the Canadian War Museum, 1 Vimy Pl, Ottawa, at Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa and soon in 17 cities across Canada. Amazing!
