Haggar Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Classic TicketsThe Haggar Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Classic is a great part of the Hockey Hall of Fame (HHOF) Induction Weekend every year. This event pits some of the biggest names from seasons past against one another in a friendly game. Two teams of legends, captained by legends, face-off against one another. Although retired and often in their 50s, these players are still playing at a very high level. In recent years, captain match-ups for the teams have included Jari Kurri versus Mark Messier, Mats Sundin versus Nicklas Lidstrom and Ed Belfour versus fellow goalie Grant Fuhr. These games also celebrate some of the better officials to ever work in the NHL. Retired Hall of Fame referee Bill McCreary and linesman Ray Scapinello generally officiate the games. Coaches behind the bench are usually Hall of Fame players themselves. In 2018, Willie O'Ree, the first black player in the NHL, was one of the coaches. StubHub is the place to find tickets to these Legends Classic games.

Goalies tend to take a beating in the Hall of Fame Legends Classic games, giving up as many as 9 or 10 goals. These games are all about the great moments along the way.
