This mural celebrates Winnipeg’s passion for hockey and the return of the Winnipeg Jets to the NHL in 2011, after the franchise had been absent from the city since 1996. It represents an evolution of one’s career in the sport, starting out playing as kids on a homemade outdoor rink, to playing professionally in an arena with a crowd of thousands of fans. In the centre of these two scenes, displays many of the trophies and achievements of Winnipeg Hockey stars. such as Johnathan Toews and Bobby Hull. It includes also many trophies such as The Allan Cup, Smythe Trophy, Calder Cup and the Avco Cup. Other symbols such as the Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose logos are seen throughout, as well as the Winnipeg Golden Boy standing at the very top. Golden scrolls list various Manitoba hockey players throughout history.
