In 2009 the Terrace community banded together in an effort to be crowned the Kraft Hockeyville champions that year. The popular national contest challenged small communities across Canada to show their community – and hockey – spirit. The contest galvanized the community at a time when people were reeling from the 2008 recession. Community members hosted voting events, pond hockey games, street parties, parades and so many other activities in an effort to be crowned Hockeyville. All the work paid off when Terrace won the contest and earned the title of Hockeyville. Terrace went on to host an NHL exhibition hockey game between the Vancouver Canucks and the NY Islanders at our local arena.
After the win, Bob “Big Bob” Park, owner of All Seasons Source for Sports and local community booster, commissioned Terrace artist Mark Hart of Hart Designs, to paint the custom mural featuring the progression of goalie masks over the evolution of the game. Hart is a renowned air brush artist whose custom designs adorn professional, amateur and retail goalie masks. Mark uses his form training in art in graphic design to develop individual concepts and designs to air brush some of the most creative and intricate designs on the market.
