It was 1972 in a small town in rural Quebec. The Montreal Canadians were about to win their 6th Stanley Cup in 10 years, and hockey was on everyone's lips. At the centre of the town's hockey mania, were the Pond Boys, a self-organized team of 12 year old boys who played hockey on backyard ponds. The boys, led by the immensely talented Luc Bouvier, pushed to the limits of their outdated hockey gear, to test the bounds of friendship. Tristan des Marchier moved to town with his widowed mother. Hockey, as the Pond Boys knew it, was about to take on a whole new meaning. Brimming with raw talent and an unmatched love of the game, Tristan was out to prove himself. If only the Pond Boys would give him a chance. Armed with nothing but belief in himself, (and a mysterious visitor who dropped by at the strangest times), he made goalie pads and set out to play his first game. He was determined to make a future for himself in the NHL, even though he had never played in net before. The citizens of the town form a close knit patchwork of eccentric, quirky and hilarious characters. At the heart of the town was a cafe, Centre Ice, owned by Tomas. Young hockey players were treated as heroes by the locals who held regular tables. Behind the counter were photos of Tomas kissing the coveted Stanley Cup and posing with NHL legends...curiously, no one knew who Tomas was or where he came from.
