Late Canadian music legend Stompin' Tom Connors' best known song was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in October 2018! No surprise!
"The Hockey Song" is a song written and originally performed by Canadian folksinger Stompin' Tom Connors. The song's first release was on Connors' 1973 album, Stompin' Tom and the Hockey Song. The song was played at Ottawa Senators games in 1992, after which Pat Burns, then coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs, insisted it be played in Toronto as well. The song is now played throughout both Canadian and American NHL arenas.
