Mr. Hockey (c) and Mr. Goalie Coming to Langley Events Centre

Oct 05, 2011

It is with great pleasure to announce the addition of Mr. Goalie, Glenn Hall, to the line-up featured at the upcoming Vancouver Hockey Fanfest coming to the Langley Events Centre, October 21 - 23. After news had come that Jean Beliveau would be unable to attend, Glenn Hall, who seldom missed a game during his career ensured he wouldn't miss this event and the chance to reunite with Mr. Hockey©, Gordie Howe. Hall was given the moniker 'Mr. Goalie' for his innovative style between the pipes that is no referred to, and commonly employed by current NHL goalies, as the 'butterfly'. His presence should provide fans a chance to see one of the real unique characters of the NHL's vintage era.

"Glenn Hall is an NHL legend and innovator," Langley Events Centre Director of Business Development, Jared Harman, said the facility learned that Beliveau would not be coming late last week when the decision was made to approach Glenn Hall, " we are extremely excited to be able to pair up Mr. Hockey© and Mr. Goalie for a great fan experience at Vancouver Hockey Fanfest".

Joining Howe and Hall at the Langley Events Centre will be Glen Hanlon, Cesare Maniago, Charlie Hodge, 'King' Richard Brodeur, Tony Tanti, Paul Reinhart, Larry Melynk and Gino Odjick. Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase a limited edition Glen Green print of Trevor Linden and Kirk McLean and have it signed.
