This is where hockey was born-under the open sky-where the ice is gritty and so is the play.

Pond Hockey

For generations, Northlanders have grown up on outdoor ice. But, there are new climate- controlled arenas in every town, and that's where the kids go to practice year-round now. The frozen ponds are losing their inhabitants.

In Pond Hockey, director Tommy Haines and his Minnesota crew chronicle the changing culture of hockey. Through interviews from Wayne Gretzky, Neal Broten, and Sidney Crosby to local rinkrats, Pond Hockey examines the true meaning of sport.

More than just a celebration of a beloved game, Pond Hockey asks: is there room for the free spirit of the pond in today's sports experience, or will the open sky and howling winds give way to whistles and metal ceilings?
