The Legendary Hockey Heroes are returning to Courtenay for the Oldtimers’ Hockey Challenge. The game goes Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.

Organizers say Hockey Hall of Fame members Bryan Trottier and Glenn Anderson will join Bob Bourne, Larry Melnyk, Ron Flockhart and Warren Skorodenski as they take on the Vancouver Island Law Enforcement Hockey Team. 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 Cops for Cancer.

“Add the Call to Recycle Tykes, the Comox Figure Skating Club and singing cameo with Bryan Trottier on guitar, the Oldtimers’ Hockey Challenge is sure to be a very exciting and entertaining game for the entire family,” an event spokesperson said.

The Oldtimers’ Hockey Challenge goes to over 48 cities from coast to coast in Canada. Organizers say it is the most successful tour of its kind in North America and has raised over $8.5 million for hundreds of charities over the last 22 years.

Tickets for the Courtenay game are $25 with three years and under free. Discount tickets are available online at www.imarktickets.com or at Happy’s Source for Sports at 256 Sixth St. in Courtenay.
