Paul Henderson indelibly put his fingerprint on Canadian sports 45 years ago Thursday, a moment frozen in time for those who held their breath for it and a revelation to a new generation of fans who have come to learn of it. Henderson's short, desperate shot, banged home in Moscow's Luzhniki Ice Palace, instantly was stitched into his country's fabric.


Yvan Cournoyer shows not his face but his back. And to this day, 44 years after the dramatic image was recorded on grainy 35-millimetre film, the man nicknamed "Roadrunner" is entirely okay with that. In the photo taken Sept 28. 1972, Cournoyer is leaping into the arms of teammate Paul Henderson.


Gary Smith was the right person, in the right place, at the right time. In 1971, he was a young diplomat, fluent in Russian, newly posted in Moscow. At the same time, he was also a passionate player and student of hockey. When Leonid Brezhnev, Andrei Kosygin and Pierre-Elliot Trudeau started using hockey to build bridges between Russia and Canada, Smith rose to the occasion.


The 1972 Summit Series between Canada and the USSR national hockey teams was the first time Canadian professional hockey players faced the Soviet Union’s national team. Many believe this special series changed hockey forever. This is a once-in-a-lifetime exhibit, and it is the first time it has been displayed live in Ottawa. This should not be missed. Free with your admission ticket.
