Four members of the Canadian team from the famed 1972 Summit Series between Canada and the Soviet Union will be among the featured guests at the Sports Collectors Convention at the 2022 Western Canada Collectibles Experience.
The event takes place in conjunction with Bossa Productions November 18 to 20 at Langley Events Centre.
The scheduled guests include Yvan Cournoyer, Dennis Hull, Peter Mahovlich and Dale Tallon – who were members of Team Canada for the Summit Series, an eight-game exhibition against the USSR in 1972 – as well as Jeremy Roenick, Todd Bertuzzi, Richard Brodeur and Gino Odjick.
“Every year we love seeing the Western Canada Collectibles Experience grow from both a vendor and fan aspect and this year is no different,” said Tyler Dinwoodie, associate director, production services and communications for Langley Events Centre.
“Our autograph guest line-up is going to appeal to fans of all generations and having Yvon Cournoyer, Dennis Hull, Peter Mahovlich and Dale Tallon here gives us the opportunity to do our part to honour the 50th anniversary of the Summit Series, which is such a significant piece of Canadian sports history.”
