when and where it was filmed
5 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would love to get a copy of the Deadliest Season. It was filmed at the Hartford Civic Center, Hartford, Ct in Nov 1976. I was the guy who was getting checked all the time and took all the slap shots My friends and I who were playing semi pro hockey in the area were the hockey players in this movie. We were paid 50 bucks a day which started at 6am and ended at 6pm for 10 days. When not being used for a scene the rest of the guys would sit in the locker room and drink beer from the keg that was supplied by the people in charge. With my 400.00 pay I bought a table saw from Sears, which I still use today. If anyone knows where I can get a copy, I would be eternally grateful.
