Heritage Night: Celebrating the Legacy of Senior Hockey in Gatineau Valley

Join us on February 3rd for a special Heritage Night as the Paugan Falls Rapids take on the Glengarry Pipers at the Gatineau Valley Arena. This night is not just about the high-stakes game with playoff implications but also a celebration of the rich history of senior hockey in the Gatineau Valley.

Honoring the Past

The Central Gatineau Hockey League (CGHL) was an outdoor senior hockey league that saw teams from local towns Wakefield, Rupert, Farrellton, Brennan’s Hill, Low, Paugan Falls, Venosta, Kazabazua and Danford compete to hoist the cherished Hopkins Cup – and the bragging rights that came with it. Heritage Night is a tribute to those thrilling games and the deep roots of hockey in our region.

CGHL Meet and Greet

Starting at 5 pm, there will be a meet and greet at the Gatineau Valley Arena. This meet and greet session offers a chance for players and fans of the CGHL to catch up and reminisce about the old league. 

CGHL Exhibit: A Walk Down Memory Lane

An exclusive CGHL exhibit will be set up, displaying photos and memorabilia from the league's glorious past. This exhibit, open from 5 pm until after the game, invites fans to immerse themselves in the rich history of the league.

Special Pre-Game Ceremony

Before the national anthem and the game's start, a special ceremony will honor the history and the players of the CGHL. More details on this ceremony will be announced soon, promising a poignant start to the evening.
