“Tiger Pride – Eight Decades of CC Hockey” to Air on Television Nov. 26
CC hockey fans, if you haven’t already seen the recently released film featuring your favorite hockey team, you’ll get your chance over the Thanksgiving holiday.
“Tiger Pride – Eight Decades of CC Hockey,” available on DVD since last month, makes its prime-time premiere on the NHL Network at 7 p.m. EST (5 p.m. MST) Friday, Nov. 26.
The movie, produced by Rival Films, LLC, traces the CC hockey program’s evolution from a rag-tag industrial league outfit in the mid-1930s to its two national championships in the 1950s to its present-day status as a perennial powerhouse in the ranks of NCAA Division I.
Narrated by Mike “Doc” Emrick, voice of the NHL on Versus and NBC, it features rare footage and photographs dating back more than half a century as well as interviews with players, administrators, and other key individuals connected with Tiger Hockey.
The film makes its television debut 2½ hours before the Tigers play host to the University of Alaska Anchorage in the opener of a two-game WCHA series at the World Arena that same night.
It also can be purchased in person at the Colorado College Bookstore, as well as at the World Arena during all CC home games.
