Before the existence of competitive leagues playing hockey in front of thousands of fans there was pond hockey. Pond hockey is a sport that is very similar to traditional ice hockey except that it’s played outdoors on a natural frozen body of water.
People who have played pond hockey say there is nothing like playing with the sky above your head with the fresh air in your lungs. They say this is the way hockey is was meant to be played. But things are changing. Now there are climate controlled arenas in every town and that’s where today’s kids go to play.
Through interviews from NHL stars such as Wayne Gretzky, Neal Broten, and Sidney Crosby as well as local rinkrats, this film chronicles the changing culture of hockey.
This documentary is not just a celebration of hockey but also a search for the true meaning of sport.
