The Hockey Sweater is a 1980 Canadian film. It is about a group of friends who grow up in 1940s Canada and adore the Montreal Canadiens and its star and future Hall of Fame player, Maurice Richard. The group all get Richard sweaters with his number on the back. When one of the boys' sweater is worn out, the mother buys a new one but ends up getting a Toronto Maple Leaf's jersey instead. For that reason, the boy becomes the ridicule factor of his friends.
