The WHA Hall of Fame hosted the "WHA Day" celebration with a WHA player reunion, screenings of the WHA HOF documentary series, autograph signings and fan interaction events.
"We are proud to partner with Canada's national museum of sport for this WHA 40th anniversay celebration," says WHA Hall of Fame president Timothy Gassen. "The WHA changed the game of major league hockey for Canada and the world, and this kind of premium museum display and public celebration will be a great treat for Canadian hockey fans." (The WHA HOF's official museum partner in the United States is the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Museum in Minnesota.)
