The 2017 Fall Meeting of the Society for International Hockey Research was held in Montréal, Québec, on the weekend of November 24-26. This particular weekend was chosen to coincide with the centennial of the National Hockey League, which was founded on November 26, 1917, at Montréal's Windsor Hotel.
SIHR members will convene in picturesque Parry Sound, Ontario, for the 2018 Annual General Meeting of the Society. Located 225 KM north of Toronto, the popular vacation destination is the birthplace of NHL legend Bobby Orr. The meeting will take place at the Bobby Orr Community Centre.
The Dallas Stars have extended an invition to the SIHR to hold its 2018 fall meeting in that city, lending credence to the city's motto, "Big Things Happen Here." Many activities related to the history of hockey in the state are being planned by the team, and the Society is happy to be part of the celebrations, which will be the farthest west and south that a meeting has ever been held.
