Director's Statement

The Senators is an inspirational comedy-drama about overcoming life's challenges that explores friendship and unity, triumph and tragedy among a group that is forever bonded by a passion for their sport. What started out as just a team soon became a family as their personal lives intertwined and together they faced life's triumphs and tragedies. Please note that although the story has a hockey element, it is not just a sports movie. Industry analyst Jim Mercurio described it as like "...the good Ron Shelton sports movies; it's about much more than sports."
