Visiting places like Truro, Nova Scotia (where theres a run for the Allan Cup, senior hockeys top prize), Bienfait, Saskatchewan, and Stonewall, Manitoba, Boyd finds the people who care about the game and work to keep it alive. He sits in on junior-league coaching sessions, heated playoff games between rival teams, and the coffee-shop conversations that relive the good old days. Hockey Towns paints a vivid picture of where hockey came from and where it is today, from the enthusiastic kids who practice early Saturday mornings to the former NHL players who keep the spirit alive in their late-night oldtimers games.

What emerges is a heartwarming portrait of our national pastime on a small-town level, where its roots have always been.
