On April 25th, 2023, West Hants Regional Municipal Council voted unanimously in favor of recognizing the accomplishments of John Paris Jr. to the world of hockey.

John faced many barriers, both personally and professionally, in his life. He overcame adversity; dealing with racism; and major health issues, with grace. John always remembers his roots growing up in Windsor and the values that his parents instilled in their children.

For his love of the game, for his continued work in coaching, and for his accomplishments on and off the ice, the Council of the West Hants Regional Municipality named the Rink at the West Hants Sports Complex the John Paris Jr. Rink.
