Peter Zezel and Steve Thomas, at the time of filming, were in fact, professional NHL players. In the film, they play for the Hamilton Mustangs, and in real-life, they both played for the Philadelphia Flyers and the Toronto Maple Leafs. See more »

As a young hockey player growing up, this was one of the movies that I adored. There is a very dramatic 80s style soundtrack, lots of dramatic stickwork and the evil goaltender has a mask that looks like a skull.
This is still a fun movie to put on, and if you've played hockey or ice skated, it is easy to relate to some of the scenes in the movie But once you watch it a lot, you realize EVERYONE is a one dimensional stereotype, from the aloof fathers who really love their kids, to the innocent young kid having to come of age, to the older brother figure, to the nothing-but-evil villain. It starts to wear thin.
Still, the opening scene with skating in the barn captures the excitement of being on the ice better than any other scene I could think of.
