Against all odds, firefighter and paramedic Kevin Porter is determined to do the seemingly impossible – become a professional hockey player in his 40s. Against the backdrop of an old-school hockey community filled with detractors who say he should give up, he’s put himself through a brutal training regimen with a clear focus on his singular goal and gone through a journey that is passionate, painful and inspirational.
After the tragic death of his mother as a young teen, Kevin found an outlet for his shock and pain in minor league hockey success. When he found himself benched after breaking his hand, his devastation at being pushed aside caused him to quit hockey altogether, sweeping his pro-hockey dreams under the rug.
Twenty years later, with his dream of hockey glory set aside, Kevin was happily married with successful career as a first responder, until one night, during a routine firefighting call he entered a blazing building and fell 15 feet into the basement of an illegal cannabis grow-op. It was a life changing moment: Kevin knew he had unfinished business on the ice. His brush with death gave him the drive to get back on the ice and do everything it took to pursue his hockey dream. Against all odds, Kevin continues to ruthlessly train day and night, in a journey that is passionate, painful and inspirational.
