Ten days and 250 hours later, 40 hockey players are now taking a well-earned break after setting the new record for the world's longest hockey game.

More than 4,000 goals were scored in the epic game, which was held at Saiker's Acres outdoor rink in Strathcona County.

In total, the players raised more than $1 million for the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

The game, which is in its fifth incarnation, was started by Dr. Brent Saik following his father's death from cancer.
