The Canadian Museum of History has acquired what’s believed to be the world’s oldest – hockey stick.
The museum got it from a man in Nova Scotia, who found it in a barber shop.
The 47-year old bought it for $1,000 and will get $300,000 from the museum in Gatineau, Quebec.
An emotional Mark Presley says he’s happy all Canadians will be able to share its significance and meaning.
The simple piece of wood was crafted into a hockey stick in Cape Breton in the 1830s.
It’ll go on display Canada Day 2017.
