Hundreds of hockey players got to relive their dreams of becoming NHL all-stars this weekend at a hockey tournament for a good cause.
Calgary's inaugural Scotiabank Pro Am tournament for Alzheimer's at Canada Olympic Park raised money for the Gordie and Colleen Howe Fund for Alzheimer's.
Amateur teams faced off against NHL alumni, which included stars such as Lanny McDonald, Theo Fleury and Tiger Williams.
The top amateur team raised $167,000.
The fund is named for Colleen Howe, who passed away from Pick's disease, a form of dementia in 2009.
