THE EPIC, RECKLESS and inspirational

life story of a hockey legend

You don’t need to know anything about hockey to love the exhilarating, heart-breaking, and triumphant true story of courageous Canadian hockey legend, Theoren Fleury. With the odds stacked against him, considered too short to play hockey, the pint-sized Métis kid with huge ambitions from Russell, Manitoba, overcame crushing obstacles to become an NHL All-Star, win the Stanley Cup, and represent Canada twice at the Olympic Games where he earned a Gold medal. A top scoring hit performed entirely on ice!
