PARRY SOUND, Ontario -- Arguably no player in history was as great as Bobby Orr, so it's fitting that the hockey legend now has his own Hall of Fame.

The Hockey Hall of Fame defenseman will be back here in his hometown Friday for the grand opening of the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame, part of the picturesque town's new Charles W. Stockey Centre looking out across Georgian Bay.

Although the hall has been open since July 1, workers were still putting finishing touches on the small but impressive facility on Thursday to prepare for the festivities that will include guests such as the CBC's Don Cherry and Ron Maclean.
