The Hockey Hall of Fame has come to Vancouver.

A piece of it, anyway.

The Hockey Hall of Fame – Legends of Hockey exhibit is open at the Fair at the PNE, and it has just about everything.

All that’s missing is the Stanley Cup.

With over 5,000 square feet of artifacts, artwork, photography, and video, it’s the largest exhibition of its kind outside of the Hall itself.

“For anybody that’s into hockey, what a unique opportunity. Normally you’d have to travel to Toronto to go see this,” PNE media relations manager Laura Balance told Daily Hive.

The exhibit, which is free with admission to the Fair, has everything from major trophies like the Art Ross Trophy, World Cup, Canada Cup, Presidents’ Trophy, and Clarence Campbell Bowl, to the mouthguard worn by Team Canada defenceman Isabelle Chartrand during the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics.

You can get close enough to the Art Ross Trophy to see Henrik and Daniel Sedin’s names on there. You can spot the Vancouver Canucks on the Clarence Campbell Bowl and Presidents’ Trophy as well.

Art and hockey collide in a display of Andy Warhol paintings…

There’s a Vancouver flavour to the exhibit.

Want to see the trophy presented to a 10-year-old Joe Sakic in 1980? It’s at the PNE. This is what he got for scoring his 100th goal while a member of the North Shore Winter Club in atom.

No Hockey Hall of Fame exhibit would be complete without a section devoted to Wayne Gretzky of course.
