TV DOCUMENTARY • WNED/PBS • In Association with Forevergreen TV & Film

Exploring hockey history and culture, this entertaining and passionate documentary offers an insightful, intimate look at the game described as “Canada’s gift to the world.” While capturing the timeless excitement of competition, the film relays the spirit of hockey among Canadians, its traditions, dramatic human stories and family commitment. Viewers also learn how hockey has evolved over nearly 200 years — from open-pond outdoor games to professional play in packed National Hockey League arenas. The film is filled with trivia (what good luck charm was hidden under the ice at the 2002 Olympic games?) and inspiring profiles (a young boy with dwarfism defies the stereotypes to tend goal).
