CALGARY - Talk about Canadiana at its best.

Imagine a hockey game ... featuring NHL players ... on Lake Louise.

Picture the mountain backdrop while the likes of big name stars such as Jarome Iginla, Sidney Crosby and Henrik and Daniel Sedin skate on the natural ice.

It could happen.

In fact, it’s in the works if NHL lockout can’t be solved in time to save a season.

In case the league and the National Hockey League Players’ Association can’t come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement in time to save the 2012-13 season, the union has been making plans to organize a charity game at the picturesque site in Banff National Park, Sportsnet’s Daren Millard reported Thursday.
