Inside the "Slap Shot Room"

Slap Shot 2

We showed up in Johnstown, a town known for steel, floods, and hockey. We stopped by the Cambria County War Memorial, which was the home of the Charlestown Chiefs in the film “Slap Shot”, with Paul Newman. We started to explore the arena, then the staff took us on a tour, which included the “Slap Shot Room”. The room was full of memorbilia from the film. Overall, a very cool experience for a hockey fan.

Cambria War Memorial, built in 1950, seats 4000 for hockey. It’s been the home of the Johnstown Jets & Chiefs, and now the Junior A Tomahawks. I would have loved to watch a Tomahawks game there, but the ice was already up and the glass down. I’m sure it’s a great arena to catch a hockey game.
