Famous former NHL referee speaker at the Sports Hall of Fame ceremony


After a two-year hiatus, the 23rd Collingwood Sports Hall of Fame is preparing for the return of Collingwood Legion induction ceremonies to welcome its class of 2020 inductees.

Our guest speaker, retired hockey umpire, Kerry Fraser, returns to Collingwood where he played for the Collingwood Blues in their inaugural season in the OHA Central Jr. B league. Arguably the most recognized striped man – for his “perfectly groomed hair”, he’s the guy most hockey fans love to hate!

Kerry will share stories that cover 1,904 regular season games (most in history), 261 Stanley Cup Playoffs, selection to 12 Stanley Cup Finals, the 1996 World Cup of Hockey in Europe and North America ; the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan; two NHL All-Star Games; and the 2010 Winter Classic on New Year’s Day in Boston’s historic Fenway Park.

After a rich officiating career, Kerry is the author of the best-selling book titled The Final Call. We look forward to an evening of hard-hitting and entertaining stories from inside the NHL when he returns to Collingwood; where the journey began.

The event takes place on May 14, starting at 5 p.m. with a cocktail reception and the parade of inductees begins at 6 p.m.

This year’s winners are David Christie, Patty Federer, Bill Redick and Fern St. Onge.

Tickets for the ceremony are $50 and proceeds from ticket sales go to support the continued operation of the Collingwood Sports Hall of Fame.
