TORONTO, October 23, 2014 – Today Factory Film Studio announces the release of the historical documentary The Father of Hockey. This film tells the story of the battle for ‘Hockey’s Hall of Fame’!

The Father of Hockey will be distributed by eOne Canada available coast-to-coast on October 28th 2014.
