Great hockey series
18 February 2008 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

This a documentary which gives some great unknown facts about the history of hockey, from its origins to its current state today.

Not only it offers the story of how the game started, it gives also facts how it succeeded beside its pro side, like the ladies leagues, the aboriginal teams, blacks who wants to integrate the game, hockey in war time, the European development...etc. All fields are covered, and describes how the French and English population enjoyed the game.

French version is done with Quebec comedian James Hyndman, with some french guests like former hockey greats Guy Lafleur, Jean Beliveau, and local writers who commented about this great sport in books...
