'Mr. Hockey' reaches another Hallmark
Actor Michael Shanks, who portrays Howe, accurately calls the film "a slice of his life" in a "making of" trailer.
The film first premieres at 8 p.m. April 28 on CBC — as hockey fans would want it. The production makes its American debut the following week, May 4 at 9 p.m., on the Hallmark Channel.
In case you were wondering, the film did not take advantage of Michigan's film incentives. It was shot in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, according to Internet Movie Database.
