ABOUT THE MOVIE
Ice Guardians journeys into the lives of those who perform what is undoubtedly the toughest job within the National Hockey League today: The Enforcer. Very few understand this position and fewer yet appreciate what is involved in becoming one. Ice Guardians steps beyond the hype and heads directly to the source of the debate...the players themselves. Through their eyes, tough exteriors are shed to reveal the humanity behind a role that struggles to maintain its existence.
The film features several former NHL players, including former Kings forwards Dave Schultz, George Parros, Rick Tocchet and Westgarth, and current Kings forward Jarome Iginla. The film is also available on all major digital platforms (Vimeo, iTunes, Amazon) and Cable On Demand (Time Warner, Dish TV, etc.). To view the movie trailer, Click Here
