“Mike Cambell, 90 years old of New Waterford, Nova Scotia still to this very day straps on the gear and laces up the skates in scheduled Old-Timers hockey games in Cape Breton. He could very well be the oldest active hockey player,not only in Nova Scotia..but all of Canada?
Initial research by Danny Dill, (Long Pond,Windsor,N.S.), so far seems to support this amazing Canadian hockey feat.To date, Dill has learned that the next two closest “oldest” active hockey players are both 88 years of age: Mr.Al Peppard from Middleton,N.S. and Mr. Doug Palmer,Montreal,who is originally from Windsor,N.S. We will be sure to update as we learn more in the quest for the “Grand-Daddy of Canadian Hockey”.
