Happy Boxing Day, Canada!

NBC Sports created this tribute to its hockey-loving friends from the north. While 2017 has been another eventful year – the 100th for the NHL – it also marks the first in which the entire nation and our hockey world lost a piece of its fabric with the passing of The Tragically Hip’s front man Gord Downie.
