The NHL kicked off the new hockey season over the weekend, and you know what that means: bone jarring hits, end-to-end action and the perfect excuse to rewatch your favorite hockey movies of all time.
Okay, so maybe there aren't quite as many great hockey movies as there are, say, great movies about baseball. And we also admit that for some reason, Hollywood doesn't always seem to get hockey, often using the great sport as a platform for unfunny comedies ('The Tooth Fairy,' anyone?) or lame romcoms. (Remember 'The Cutting Edge'? Yeah, we wish we could forget it too.)
But for every misfire like 'The Love Guru' there's a great hockey film hiding in your Blu-ray bin, just waiting to be rediscovered. In order to help you celebrate the beginning of the new NHL season in style, then, we've put together our list of the top hockey films of all time. So drop your gloves and grab your popcorn, because it's time to face off with Hollywood's best puck potboilers.
