A Slap Shot Moment

11/04/2008 at 4:46pm EST

My friend Rebecca Bollwitt had a chance to talk to the cast of Slap Shot 3 yesterday. And as much as I disapprove of the sequelization of the original Slap Shot, at least it all stems from hockey movie goodness of days gone by. (R.I.P, Paul Newman).

imageWhen [Hunter] Elliott got the call about being cast in the film, he was “through the roof with excitement,” noting that it was one of the best days of his life, knowing he’d be a part of this franchise. “I pretty much grew up on Slap Shot, my dad played hockey in high school and got a scholarship for Brock University for goal tending so I have a pretty intense hockey background.” [...]

Slap Shot 3 also sees roles and cameos from hockey stars such as Doug Gilmour, who McDonell admits was one of his childhood icon, “sitting behind a bench and watching them do the scenes was pretty surreal.”

And a P.S. from Rebecca: Both Hunter Elliott and Ryan McDonnel—the film’s stars—are Vancouver Canucks fans. Which is clearly a sign of their excellent character… :)

*Apparently it’s Canucks Movie Day around here.
