More than $2,100 was raised at this year's Grumpy Old Men Charity Exhibition Hockey game, with the proceeds going to the SOS Recreation Assistance Program. The money will give local children in low income families the chance to register in hockey and skating.

Players included retired professional hockey players and some other well known faces, including Fred Ewanuic who played Hank on the TV Show Corner Gas. Some fabulous raffle prizes were won including a Chad Brownlee/Dallas Smith autographed guitar, a signed Carey Price jersey, and a Vancouver Canucks signed jersey.
