The City of Hamilton is renaming an arena after former NHL player Harry Howell.

City Council has voted unanimously to rename the North Wentworth Twin Pad Arena – the Harry Howell Arena.   It comes at a minimal cost, the city will spend $30,000 on a new sign.

Many councillors spoke about the NHL great’s mark on the city, including his willingness to play Saturday morning pick-up hockey with Flamborough youth.
