A flag-raising ceremony honouring the "First Star of Ice Hockey" will be held at Montreal's Victoria Skating Rink on February 13, 2021. Media Release (04/02/2021) Montreal, QC - Said a spokesperson for this unprecedented event, "In ice hockey we have a longstanding tradition of honouring the best three players in any given game.  This ceremony will celebrate the First Star of the Sport of Ice Hockey, and we at feel that this celebration is long overdue. 

The ceremony will proceed two hours before the start of that Saturday's nationally-televised match between Montreal andToronto and is expected to take about seventy-five to ninety seconds.

Some concerns have been expressed on the part of intending spectators, since the VSR was demolished nearly a century ago, making admittance difficult if not impossible.

Be assured that arrangements have been quietly made with the now-defunt facility's caretaker so that unlimited virtual entry can be obtained by clicking on this link. Once inside, click on the bird in the rafters for further updates.
