When 'Score: A Hockey Musical' opened TIFF this year, it didn't seem like the start of a new stick-and-puck trend. A highly Canadian movie about the country's most popular sport, the film came off as an okay feature for the hockey lover if "expectations [were left] on the sidelines." But now we've got another team moving onto the ice, one that's sure to -- at the very least -- make this cinematic hockey offering more recognizable.

In fact, this feature -- 'Goon' -- wasn't whipped up as an "I can do that better" response to 'Score.' 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' star Jay Baruchel started chatting about this Canadian hockey movie back in 2009, and now he's scored leading names from 'Cop Out,' 'Scott Pilgrim v. the World,' 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' and 'C.R.A.Z.Y.' to populate it.
