Photos & Video: Off Ice on the Northern Lights Dream Tour
The NHL players on the Northern Lights Dream Tour spent the day Monday, November 19, 2012 hitching rides on snowmobiles, hunting, dog sledding, dancing and going ice fishing after flying into Deline, N.W.T. on a World War II vintage DC-3. The small native community of 600 people is the birthplace of hockey, where skating with a stick was first recorded in 1825.
