Soul On Ice: Past, Present, and Future presents and retells the virtually unknown contributions of black athletes in ice hockey. For decades, hockey was seen as a homogeneous sport - exciting to watch but played by one kind of player. Soul On Ice presents the exploits of athletes who dared to stand out, and dared to make the sport their own. These Black athletes dared to give their sport soul. At the heart of the story is Jaden Lindo, a young man chasing after his lifelong dream to play in the NHL. The film follows Jaden in the most important year of his hockey life, mirroring the journey that many other black athletes have faced to make it to the NHL.
Some of today’s top NHL stars and former players join us on our journey through history, through in-depth personal interviews. Wayne Simmonds, Wille O’Ree, Herb Carnegie, Joel Ward, Trevor Daley, Mike Marson, Tony McKegney and five-time NHL Stanley Cup winner Grant Fuhr share their experiences. For the first time, Soul On Ice: Past, Present and Future sheds light on a subject hardly spoken of. The face of hockey is changing and this film shows us it has been in the making for a long time.
