Abstract

It is known that Canada’s sport and pastime is Hockey, however, we see in pop culture that this is undermined by America laying claim to the sport. In movies such as Miracle on Ice, Goon, The Mighty Ducks, and Slap Shot, we see America’s claim to Canada’s sport—Hockey, by suggesting that America is the greatest on ice. In this presentation, I will critique the usage of Hockey in the aforementioned films and the exploitation of Canada’s greatest gift to the world.
