Just when you thought things couldn't get any better, we teamed up with our new friends, the Montreal Canadiens to bring you << Train Like a Pro >> video series, fan contests, the most epic McDonald's commercial ever made and much more!
Founded in 1909, the Montreal Canadiens, or better known as “The Habs", are the longest operating professional hockey team worldwide. The Eastern Conference powerhouse has won 24 Stanley Cups - more than any other franchise in history. The Canadiens play out of the Bell Centre and are led by Captain Shea Weber, newly acquired Max Domi, and superstar goalie Carey Price. Claude Julien took over the helm of the Canadiens in 2017. Julien will look to repeat on the success he had in Boston, capturing a Stanley Cup in 2011, as the Canadiens look to hoist their 25th Stanley Cup one day.
McDonald's Commercial With Shea Weber
You may have caught it when it aired, but a recent McDonald's commercial promoting the new Mighty Angus Burger featured Montreal Canadiens' defensemen, Shea Weber. If you thought it was computer generated - think again!!! During the summer of 2017, HockeyShot had the incredible opportunity to participate in the making of the commercial with our very own Extreme Glide Synthetic ice!
On a sunny day out in beautiful Kananaskis, Alberta, the NHL All Star and two-time Olympic gold medalist, laced up his skates and challenged a real-life cowboy and his horse to an epic showdown to certify their might. The set-up for the battle took hours as a running track was dug for the horse and hundreds of feet of HockeyShot's Synthetic ice were laid down for Weber on the rough terrain! The production team worked tirelessly to create an epic western environment. Check out the Behind the Scenes video to see all the hard work and dynamic filming that went into the making of this remarkable commercial.
