Throwback Thursday: Gordie Howe Visits Wallaceburg

On this Throwback Thursday, brought to you by CK Tubs and Taps, we look back to a time when Gordie Howe came to Wallaceburg.

It isn’t common these days to have the best hockey player in the world visit Chatham-Kent.

But it was more common in the past.

That’s exactly what happened in 1960 when Gordie Howe visited Wallaceburg hockey stick maker Wally.

Wallaceburg was the location of multiple hockey stick manufacturers for decades used by top players, and it was common to see some of the world’s best players visit town.

Here is Gordie Howe in Wallaceburg:
