Labeled an outcast by his brainy family, a bouncer overcomes long odds to lead a team of under performing misfits to semi-pro hockey glory, beating the crap out of everything that stands in his way. Goon stars Seann William Scott (American Pie's Stiffler) as a minor-league hockey enforcer, as well as Liev Schreiber (X-Men), Canadian actor Jay Baruchel (who also co-wrote the screenplay) and indie-darling Alison Pill. Michael Dowse, known for Canadian cult comedy FUBAR directs the film. The movie was also co-written by Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express)
Gongshow Gear Inc is recognized as the hockey good industry's premier manufacturer of innovative, high quality, fashionable and trend setting clothing apparel for hockey athletes of all ages and abilities.
Founded in 2002 by three teammates in the Central Junior "A" Hockey League after identifying the need for a hockey apparel brand that would accurately represent the exciting and exclusive lifestyle that hockey players live. Gongshow was the first Lifestyle Hockey Apparel brand in the world to hit the market in 2002, and this game changing company has since grown into the largest hockey lifestyle clothing brand in the world - selling in over 500 retail locations, in 15 countries internationally, and has hailed comparisons to such pioneering lifestyle brands as Billabong (Surfing Lifestyle), and Burton (Snowboarding Lifestyle). The brand is worn by hundreds of NHL Players off the ice, which has helped further fuel its growth as the apparel of choice for hockey players of all ages and skill levels.
Gongshow is dedicated to a core set of philosophies and strengths: design superiority, highest level of material quality and workmanship, edgy and trend setting hockey expression, a focus on consumer to brand connection, and strong partnerships with retailers and suppliers. Since introducing the first Lifestyle Hockey Apparel hat to hockey players in 2002, and pioneering a new retail category within hockey stores, Gongshow has constantly pushed the envelope in the evolution of hockey lifestyle and continues to influence the game in a positive manner around the world.
By taking a innovative, fresh approach to the hockey apparel industry, and attracting NHL Players and celebrities to wear the gear with pride, Gongshow set out to change the game of hockey, on and off the ice.
