Every year, a team of ex-NHLers, including such greats as Bobby Hull, Tiger Williams, and Frank Mahovlich, travels around Canada playing hockey and raising money for charity. Known as the NHL Oldtimers or Legendary Heroes of Hockey, they get the kind of attention that Mario Lemieux and Paul Kariya get today, playing to sellout crowds in Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg.

In "Oldtimers", award-winning sports columnist Gary Mason takes us on a rollicking tour with some of hockey’s greatest, putting us front and center in arenas throughout Canada and Alaska. He also takes us behind the scenes to the buses and planes and dressing rooms, where he listens in as the players share their most hilarious stories and watches as they pull their most outrageous pranks.

All in all, Mason delivers a revealing and often uproarious look at the National Hockey League, as seen by some of the biggest stars to have ever played the game.
