SALMON RIVER, N.S. (CP) - Most winter days, Web Deuville sits in a small room dubbed Ballard's Box, peering through a window at children playing hockey on an ice surface he laid down a half-century ago.

Welcome to Deuville rink, a rabbit's warren of an arena the 89-year-old great-grandfather built as a labour of love in this tiny village in central Nova Scotia.

For the past few days, some of the most powerful people in hockey have travelled to Salmon River, which in June was proclaimed by Canadians as Hockeyville, beating out over 450 other communities across the country.

"This is a big deal, no doubt about it," Deuville said Monday as he sat in a rocking chair in his living room located over the rink's canteen and dressing rooms.

"It's a lot more than I ever expected."
