Renaming Malton Arena & Wildwood Park after PAUL COFFEY!

With the incredible face-lifts to Malton Arena and Wildwood Park coming soon, I wanted to make the restorations even more memorable by renaming these public facilities to commemorate a long-standing Malton icon.  

And who is more memorable than Malton's very own NHL-legend Paul Coffey?

I moved a Motion to Council to rename the arena and surrounding park after the man who grew up playing hockey and developing his extraordinary skills in the arena itself. In the off-season, he was usually found at Wildwood Park at the lacrosse box, soccer field or baseball diamond. At a young age, Paul joined the Malton Minor Hockey Association and attributes a great deal of his hockey success to his early years in Malton Arena. With the fondest childhood memories, Paul calls himself a proud and true Malton boy, born and raised on Etude Avenue.

He showed his love for Malton upon winning his first Stanley Cup in 1984. He chose to celebrate with his family, friends and neighbours at the Malton Community Centre.

In a unanimous vote, the Malton Arena and Wildwood Park will officially be renamed Paul Coffey Arena and Paul Coffey Park! I am thrilled with the overwhelming support for the legendary figure whose heart remains in Malton.

Stay tuned for more details about the renaming ceremony and the celebration to follow - right after the repainting and face-lift of the arena and parking lots to be completed in September.

Special thanks to Production Manager of MHI Canada Aerospace Inc., and lifelong friend Joe Iannelli, for his wonderful presentation on Paul Coffey to Council on March 30th, supported by local Malton residents. There wasn't a dry eye on Council!
