I'm around if you want to discuss such players. Try and stop me.

I'm still busy writing for the Puck Prospectus annual at the moment, but I should be able to chip in some info on early defencemen.

27 years if you want to back to the first Winter Carnival tournament, which of course you should want to do. Who wouldn't?

I've seen information on exhibition games between organized clubs as far back as 1881. Montreal clubs probably played each other a few years before that.
