Halifax Metro Centre

Scotiabank Centre

Halifax is a regional municipality of about 300,000 and the capital of Nova Scotia, Canada. The first recorded rules of the game of ice hockey are believed to have been developed (but not wriiten down) in Halifax and subsequently known as Halifax Rules as opposed to the Montreal or McGill Rules  which were later used later on in Montreal. Halifax has had professional hockey dating back as far as 1910 with the Halifax Crescents in the Interprovincial Professional Hockey League. One of three copies of the AVCO World Trophy (the World Hockey Association championship trophy) resides in the Nova Scotia Sports Hall of Fame, located in the Scotiabank Centre. The other two are in the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto and the other in Winnipeg.
