“Hockey, for me, is the greatest game going.” – Charles M. Schulz
Playing ice hockey on backyard rinks in Minnesota, Schulz developed a love of the game from an early age. He joyfully portrayed ice sports in Peanuts, where Snoopy and Woodstock made a tiny birdbath their arena. Schulz began participating in senior hockey tournaments more than 40 years ago, eventually hosting Snoopy’s Senior World Hockey Tournament at Redwood Empire Ice Arena. We’re marking the occasion with Peanuts comic strips showcasing Schulz’s venerated pastime, and specially selected materials from the Zamboni Company archives.
