Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to honour father of organized hockey: James George Aylwin Creighton lies in an unmarked grave in an Ottawa cemetery but the “father” of organized ice hockey will get his due Thursday with a tribute from the prime minister and Canada's most storied team. Prime Minister Stephen Harper will be outside Montreal's Bell Centre to unveil a plaque paying tribute to one of hockey's founding fathers. He will be joined by the presidents of the Montreal Canadiens, the International Ice Hockey Federation and Hockey Canada.
