MR. HOCKEY: THE GORDIE HOWE STORY
At age 45, hockey legend Gordie Howe has retired from The Game. When given the chance to play alongside his sons, however, Gordie attempts to accomplish the unthinkable and return to professional hockey. As the Howe family prepare themselves for a comeback that some labeled “the biggest publicity stunt in hockey history,” they discover lessons about family, pride and believing in their own dreams. Stars: Michael Shanks, Kathleen Robertson, Dylan Playfair and Andrew Herr. Premieres: May 4 @ 9p.m. ET/PT, 8C.

The two of them (Shanks and Anderson) formed a Stargate hockey team made of cast and crew that played games against other production teams for shows filmed in Vancouver (like Smallville) and I think also against things like Police and Fire teams for charity.
I actually read somewhere that Shanks had considered a pro hockey career in his youth. As did Dan Shea (Sgt. Siler, Richard Dean Anderson's double, and the show's stunt co-ordinator.)
