Another Great Hockey Movie to Prepare You for Pond Hockey

Seann William Scott isn't just limited to playing a douchebag in the American Pie Movies, or a monk-in-training smart-ass in Bulletprook Monk. He can also play a total goon as the new enforcer on the ice in the hockey comedy Goon from 2011.
