See "The Last Gladiators" Premiere & See Chris Nilan In Person -FREE!

The Last Gladiators is a brand new movie profiling former Montreal Canadiens enforcer Chris “Knuckles” Nilan as well as some of the players he did battle with during his career.   The movie is being released on nationwide Friday, but Phase 4 Films is taking Nilan and the movie on tour across Canada, making a stop in Ottawa this Thursday night at the Silver City Gloucester Cinemas.  The movie will be shown, followed by a Q & A session with Chris Nilan himself, one of the toughest and most feared enforcers in the history of hockey.

Check out the trailer and tell me this isn’t something you want to see!


If you are missing NHL hockey, this is a chance to relive some great and touching moments on the ice, but as you can see from the trailer, it also brings notice to the off-ice demons that can come up and have come up for many athletes. With the summer that the NHL endured in 2011, losing 3 current or recently retired players, this movie might shed some light on what they were going through and just how hard it is to battle those demons.
