The World's Largest Hockey Stick was originally made for the entrance to the Canada Pavilion at Vancouver's Expo '86. It was transported to Duncan in 1988 and dedicated to the Cowichan Valley Regional District in 1994. It rests against the exterior wall of the Cowichan Community Centre's Cowichan Arena.
"The Stick" was authenticated in the 2010 Guinness Book of Records, and is represented in the Resource Centre, part of the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
