About the project
The pond. This is where hockey was born—under the open sky—where the ice is gritty and so is the play. For generations, rinkrats 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.
Pond Hockey examines the changing culture of sports through insightful interviews with rink rats and hockey legends like Wayne Gretzky and Neal Broten alike.
More than just a celebration of a beloved game, Pond Hockey searches the open ice for the true meaning of sport.
