Canada 's Sports Hall of Fame is a cacophony of athletic prowess. It amounts to a remarkable, but too-infrequently visited museum which pays tribute to a significant chapter of the national narrative. As Scott Russell writes, there is so much gathered here under one roof, in this one place, and the "These hall of famers have a value which goes far beyond the wins they have each recorded on various fields of play," Bernard reckoned. "Our focus goes well beyond goals scored or races won . It's about the competitive spirit being transformed into community spirit." This year the eight inductees bear her out.

Since 1955 Canada's Sports Hall of Fame has honoured the country's greatest achievers in the realm of athletic endeavour.

But the more than 600 members who are enshrined in the national museum are generally distinguished by something in addition to what they achieved on the field of play.

These men and women from all walks of life and from every cultural group represent a testament of what it means to contribute in a lasting way to the Canadian mosaic.

In the series Beyond the Win,produced in conjunction with Canada's Sports Hall of Fame14 sporting icons are profiled and engage in revealing conversations about their lives after their competitive careers are over.

NHL postpones Wednesday's Calgary-Vancouver game

  NHL postpones Wednesday's Calgary-Vancouver game The NHL has decided to ere on the side of caution as a result of Adam Gaudette’s positive COVID-19 test.  Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reports (Twitter link) that tonight’s game between the Canucks and Flames has been postponed.  TSN’s Frank Seravalli tweets that the decision was made after more information has surfaced regarding Vancouver’s test results; that information obviously has not yet been made public.

Canada 's Sports Hall of Fame is a registered charitable organization and has been a vital cultural institution in Canada for the past 65 years. As Canada 's only national museum of sport , the organization's focus is on recognition, education, curation and thought leadership with an emphasis on educating youth on the values, history and culture of sport in this country. These four pillars help to support and celebrate Canada 's sport heroes who have reached the pinnacle of their careers and are going " beyond the win " and making monumental contributions to our society.

Entering Canada 's Sports Hall of Fame alongside Donovan Bailey and his 4x100-metre relay teammates couldn't have been more fitting for Marc Gagnon. The short-track speedskater from Chicoutimi, Que., is Canada 's most decorated athlete at the Winter Olympics with five medals, and he Dreaming big was another recurring theme among the inductees, something Surin said helped him overcome his many doubters on the way up. "When I was 17, I watched Carl Lewis win four gold medals at the 1984 Olympics, he was like a God for me," said Surin. "I said to people I wanted to run

The overriding impression one is left with is of driven, passionate, sports personalities who have been able to translate their success into a living legacy of community service. They demonstrate a common belief that sport has a power to make things better.

"We believe each Hall of Famer represents much more than a singular athletic achievement," said Cheryl Bernard, an Olympic curling medallist and the president and CEO of Canada's Sports Hall of Fame. "They become treasured, iconic citizens of the Canadian community who are celebrated because of their contribution to the country's narrative.

"They are champions not only in the sense that they have won games, races, or trophies, but also because they stand for and struggle to achieve the values that sport lives by."

Beyond the Win : Hall of Famers on Tour. Innovation Exploration - Virtual Scavenger Hunts. The story of a national hall of fame devoted entirely to Canada ’s sporting history started with the efforts of one man, Harry Price.

Included in this first edition of the Beyond the Win series are athletes who have won myriad Olympic and Paralympic medals as well as countless professional hockey and football championships. These are athletes who have conquered overwhelming adversity and marathon challenges to be the best at their craft and reach the top of the podium.

But as members of the Canadian citizenry they stand out because of their humanity as much as anything else. The soul of each of these sports women and men have come to count, in equal measures, with their bodies of work and have become an accepted prerequisite for inclusion to the Hall of Fame.

"Qualities of character and honour are essential criteria to be selected for our members," said Michelle Cameron Coulter, an Olympic swimming gold medallist and the chair of the Hall of Fame's selection committee. "To be inducted is to go beyond incredible, athletic, achievement. It encompasses who these people have become on their journeys in sport and who they continue to be in the community as leaders, role models, inspiring impact makers, and contributors to our society."

Trade-deadline primer: Toronto Maple Leafs

  Trade-deadline primer: Toronto Maple Leafs After bringing in some experience and character in the offseason, the Toronto Maple Leafs have been the unquestioned leader of the North Division for most of the season. They now sit seven points clear of the second place Winnipeg Jets, meaning if there was ever a year for GM Kyle Dubas to push his chips to the middle, this might be it. Dubas himself has admitted that the team’s cap situation may lend itself to going after a rental instead of a player with term this year, meaning nearly everyone on an expiring contract could be a target for the Maple Leafs.

This " Canadian " sporting spirit is revealed beyond the war against doping. Because the country has grown as a mosaic, or confluence of several cultures, there has always been diversity reflected in our champions. Canada has introduced the world to a series of sports which have become wildly popular. It has developed champions in a wide variety of Olympic disciplines, from track and field to figure skating. While that is all well and good, the lasting legacy of the Canadian sporting experience will undoubtedly be the inclusive nature of how we approach every field of play.
