Goalie Krowns King, Blinding Him Before Big Match
11 April 2005 | by (Dundalk, Canada) – See all my reviews

Dave Hodge, host of Hockey Night In Canada introduced King Of Hockey in serialized fashion during intermissions back in the 1970s. Many of we Canadian kids who watched never forgot. Synopsis: A hotshot ice hockey player named Gabby Dugan gets involved with the wrong crowd and his goaltender friend thinks our hero has sold out to the mob.

A scuffle breaks out and the goalie bops our hero over the melon with the modified cricket bat we hockey fans call a "goalstick." Everyone knows that high-scoring forwards and stingy goalies are always at odds and alternately admire and despise one another. This story seems to bank on that conflict.

The final game comes and Gabby has to play. Is he up to the task without vision? Does a team with the audacity to call themselves "The Violets" deserve any chance at the hallowed Stanley Cup?

This movie no doubt inspired many big Hollywood movies in years to come, including probably the 2003 flick, "Daredevil."

It should be distributed on DVD. If not, we may as well all be Gabby Dugans, because we'll probably never see this beauty again. I'll have to join Dave Hodge and toss my pen away in disgust and that wouldn't be pretty.
