Two members of the Hockey Hall of Fame will be among the players suiting up for the Oldtimers Hockey Challenge next month at Prospera Place.

Former NHL greats Bryan Trottier and Glenn Anderson will be joined by the likes of Bob Bourne, Larry Melnyk, Ron Flockhart, and Warren Skorodenski for the annual charity game on Thursday, Jan. 26 at 7 p.m.

Recently retired NHL Referee Kerry Fraser will add to the competitive spirit, fun and antics of the game.

The Oldtimers Hockey Challenge is designed to give fans and players alike an opportunity to celebrate a common joy of the game while at the same time giving much needed funds to worthy organizations. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket will go to the Kelowna General Hospital Children’s Ward.

The Oldtimers’ Hockey Challenge tour is family fun entertainment appearing in over 48 cities from coast to coast in Canada.  Skaters from the Kelowna Figure Skating Club, tykes from Kelowna Minor Hockey, and a cameo performance by Bryan Trottier on guitar will add to the fun. It is the most successful tour of its kind in North America and raises money for charity in each city it visits.

Tickets are $25 each and are available at imarktickets.com, selectyourtickets.com, or at the door on game day.
