About Slap Shot

Slap Shot is a 1977 film comedy starring Paul Newman and Michael Ontkean directed by George Roy Hill. It depicts a minor league hockey team that resorts to violent play to gain popularity in a declining factory town. A team called the Charlestown Chiefs plays hockey in the fictional Federal League. A perennial loser and in financial trouble due to mill closings in the town, the team is due to be folded at season's end. Reggie Dunlop, the veteran player-coach, has no idea who the owner of the team is. While not particularly talented as either a player or a coach, Dunlop is a skilled con man, and regularly manipulates the team to his own advantage.
