Welcome Hockey Fans!

Welcome to the Springfield Hockey Heritage Society!



Springfield, Massachusetts has had a reputation for many years as a "hockey town".

Western Massachusetts is home to many great attractions. Six Flags, Basketball Hall of Fame, restaurants and shopping to name a few. However to many of us this has always been a hotbed of hockey action. Some of the best players the game has ever seen have either played with the home team, or passed through as opponents. From Shore to Howe to Orr to Gretzky and beyond, the hockey fans of Springfield have been treated over the years to many of the sport's all time greats.

Mr. Hiam was on hand to speak about the book as was Eddie "Ted" Shore, Jr. who also spoke about the book as well as telling some stories about his father.

Membership Checkout

Thank you for submitting your membership application to the Springfield Hockey Heritage Society. Before you go to our secure Google Wallet page, we want to express our thanks to you for becoming a part of hockey history here in Springfield. About half of the respondents to our original poll have answered that their first game was in the 1960s or 1970s. That means for many of you, it might have been a Saturday night at the Coliseum. While many of us remember those "good old days", newer fans may look back fondly on the back to back Calder Cup Champions of the early 90s...having never even seen a hockey game at The Old Barn! We will continue to research and do our best to put all the information in one place for hockey fans of all ages. With your membership, please feel free to share your stories with us! Don't forget - all of the stories and information will be here for generations to come! Thank you for supporting the Springfield Hockey Heritage Society!

Below, choose your one season or two season membership, then click the "Buy Now" button. You will be redirected to our secure Google Wallet page to complete your membership.

 

Connected in the 90s: Indians and Blues

The names Jimmy Roberts, Marc Bergevin, Terry Yake, Michel Picard and Blair Atcheynum are familiar to most Springfield Indians fans. All played important roles on the 1990-91 Calder Cup Champion Indians team. What most people don't remember is that they all re-united on the 1997-98 and 1998-99 St. Louis Blues.

Coliseum Revisited

Sunday August 21st, the spirit of seasons past rekindled at the Big E Coliseum in West Springfield for a very special afternoon meeting of the SHHS.

If you were there, thank you for taking the time to join us on a late summer afternoon. Also, you know what a special day it was. Of the nearly 70 in attendance, many would be listed in a Springfield Hockey version of Who's Who.

Guests included Gordie Anziano, Jim Slattery, Russ Johnson, Bob Oliver and Damon Markiewicz from the Springfield Falcons. We were also thrilled to have AHL Hall of Famer and possibly the most popular player in the long history of Springfield Hockey, Jimmy Anderson with us.

Garry Brown from the Springfield Republican was on hand. If you missed it, Garry put together a review of the day that was far more eloquent than this very basic summary.

The afternoon was dedicated to the memory of a Springfield Hockey Hall of Famer, and SHHS Charter Member, Sam Pompei.

The Society is currently planning two "Nights at the Nest" during the upcoming Falcons season. Stay tuned for more information in the weeks ahead!

 

A Day in Rhode Island

Sunday, August 1, 2010. Despite the lengthy hot and humid summer here in western Massachusetts, the weather couldn't possibly have been any better in Warwick, RI. The occasion was the 10th annual gathering of the Rhode Island Reds Heritage Society and their annual picnic and appreciation day. Pictured above from left to right are Springfield Hockey Hall of Famer Bruce Cline, Yolande Paille (widow of AHL Hall of Famer Marcel Paille) and Yves Locas.
