Here's Hockey! (1953 film)

The National Film Board of Canada hosts several hundred archived films on its website, one of which is a fantastic 10-minute documentary of Canadian hockey in 1953.

It starts with local and junior leagues, and moves up the ranks. Included are:

- Slow-mo film of Jean Beliveau dominating his junior opponents
- Film of the stripes and ice being laid in Maple Leaf Gardens
- Game film of a match between the Habs and Wings, featuring all the stars you'd expect
- A cameo by Newsy Lalonde
- Some amusing commentary about how expensive and commercial the game has become
