Pre-War Hockey Cards Stolen from Original Hockey Hall of Fame

An investigation is underway regarding the theft of several vintage hockey cards from the Original Hockey Hall of Fame in October at the Invista Centre. A boy used a miniature hockey stick to open a display case and take the cards, which were donated by a resident in the community.

Surveillance video of the boy was taken, but he remains unidentified. The cards were taken at approximately 8:30 p.m. on October 8th. While the police have the footage of the boy, it is not being released due to his age. However, he is Caucasian, estimated to be approximately ten years old, and has short brown hair. In the footage, he was wearing a blue zip hoodie, a gray MIT shirt with red letters, and dark shorts and shoes.

Some of the cards taken in the theft can be seen here. Among them are cards of early hockey players Bun Cook, Bill Beveridge, and Duke Dutkowski.

Det. Scott Huffman can be contacted at 613-549-4660, ext. 6322 by phone or emailed at
