Today is the sixth annual Long Pond Heritage Classic held at Long Pond in Windsor Nova Scotia. Spirited games of pond hockey, or “shinny” are played on Long Pond–thought to be the place where hurley-on-ice was first played. This early sport evolved into the game of ice hockey, as we know it today. Special guests include former NHL stars Ray Bourque, Stephane Richer, and Joe DiPenta. It is fundraising event with proceeds going to the Windsor Hockey Heritage Society, and The Birthplace of Hockey.
