Goalie tells the story of legendary goaltender Terry Sawchuk, who played at a time when goalies didn’t wear masks because one hadn’t been invented. That often meant that each save could bring one more gash to his unmasked face and one more drink to numb the pain. Even with a wife and seven children at home, he is haunted by the void left from his childhood which he tried to fill with cheering crowds. Sawchuk traveled across the country racking up 103 shutouts and 400 stitches to his face, proving that this is a man who lives, breathes, and dies a goalie.

Goalie is based in part on the award-winning book of poetry, Night Work, by Randall Maggs and the only authorized biography, Sawchuk: The Troubles and Triumphs of the World’s Greatest Goalie by David Dupuis. It was produced in association with Telefilm Canada, OMDC, NOHFC and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
