Hockey night on Mount Everest

A 17-member Canadian expedition to Mt. Everest this month will attempt to set two records. Team members will play hockey on the Khumbu glacier, on the world's highest mountain, in honour of the 1972 Summit Series between Canada and the U.S.S.R. And team leader, Dr. Sean Egan, 62, of Almonte, Ont. will attempt to be the oldest Canadian to scale the famous Himalayan peak.

"It will be the highest Canadian hockey game ever played," Terry Kell, a member said at a press conference yesterday at Ryerson University to announce the expedition.
