ICE-BREAKER: The '72 Summit Series

“The ’72 Summit was an ice-breaker for a lot of reasons. It was the greatest hockey ever played” – Wayne Gretzky

September 2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series, the iconic hockey tournament that pitted the best players from Canada against the best from the Soviet Union. It has been universally acknowledged as a defining event in Canadian history.

We have signed copies of Gary Smith's book, Ice War Diplomat for sale at the snack bar.

This inspiring new documentary enlarges the canvas to tell the story from the unique perspectives of a diverse cast of participants who are rarely if ever heard: diplomats, NHL hockey legends, Soviet players, journalists, fans, broadcasters, business leaders and Team Canada’s Chairman – all reveal untold, exclusive stories about what happened before, during, and after September ‘72. Wayne Gretzky, Ron Maclean, Margaret Trudeau, Harnarayan Singh, Angela James, Daniele Sauvageau, Mike Keenan, Brian Conacher, Alan Eagleson, Terry Mosher (aka cartoonist AISLIN) and others, including Russian hockey legends Vladislav Tretiak, Alexander Yakushev and Boris Mikhailov – all bring their colourful, highly engaging perspectives to the film.

“ICE-BREAKER is like seeing a place you thought you knew perfectly through a lens you never knew existed. It’s 1972.2 — just as compelling, fascinating and, for Canadians, satisfying as the original.” – Roy MacGregor
