Come celebrate the Bolts and the history of Hockey's toughest position with very special screening of the new documentary ICE GUARDIANS. Following the film, legendary Lightning enforcers Chris Dingman, Todd Fedoruk, Zenon Konopka and more will join us for an audience Q&A and VIP Meet & Greet.
Exploring one of the most controversial and provocative positions in the history of sport, Ice Guardians journeys into the lives of those who perform what is undoubtedly the toughest job within the National Hockey League today, the enforcer. It’s a punishing profession unlike any other, holding little mercy for its candidates on or off the ice. Born out of self-policing a game where 200-pound men fly towards each other on metal blades with sticks, the role now finds itself facing the scrutiny of national newspapers, on-line blogs and TV news casts. Due to its violent nature, it has drawn opinions from both fans and critics alike. So what purpose does it serve in the eyes of its beholders, and what drives them forward in the face of adversity? 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.
Meet & Greet tickets include VIP seating, two drink coupons, a chance to get up close with Chris Dingman, Zenon Konopka, Todd "The Fridge" Fedoruk and more, two signatures and the exclusive opportunity to take a photo with the athletes.
